Yes. The maximum number of Connection Kit 1700 adapters that can be used in the same Mesh network is four.
Please follow the installation steps below.

Connection Kit 1700 #1 consists of ConnectionKit_Adapter_1.1 and ConnectionKit_Adapter_1.2. ConnectionKit_Adapter_1.1 is connected to the router by Ethernet cable.

Connection Kit 1700 #2 consists of ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.1 and ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.2.

"1. Make sure ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.2 is switched off
2. Please locate ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.1 in the same room as ConnectionKit_Adapter_1.1. Switch on ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.1, wait until the red cross LED starts blinking.
3. Press the Connect & Secure button on ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.1
4. In 2 minutes, press the Connect & Secure button on ConnectionKit_Adapter_1.1
5. Wait until you see that the green checkmark gets solid green on ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.1.

You have successfully added the 3rd Connection Kit 1700 adapter to your Mesh network. You can move it to another room of your choice where you have the checkmark LED of ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.1 solid green and non-blinking. The wireless network name and password of the ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.1 will be the same of the Connection Kit 1700 #1.

To add the fourth Connection Kit 1700 adapter (ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.2) to your network, please switch it on, and follow the same steps above starting with #2 and use ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.2 instead of ConnectionKit_Adapter_2.1.

No, Connection Kit 1700 adapters are not Wi-Fi repeaters. Connection Kit 1700 provides very high-speed point-to-point wireless connection between two adapters by using 802.11ac technology. Connection Kit 1700 adapters cannot connect to your existing modem/router wirelessly and extend the range. The only way to connect the Connection Kit 1700 to your existing modem/router is the Ethernet RJ45 connection by a cable.
Both Powerline Kits and Connection Kit 1700 are used for building up a high-speed data communication between two points, i.e. connecting a set-top box to the modem/router without the need of having an Ethernet cable in between.

Powerline Kits use the electric wiring of the house to transmit the data between the Powerline adapters.

Connection Kit 1700 uses Wi-Fi 802.11ac technology on the 5 GHz band to transmit data between the Connection Kit 1700 adapters.

The real data throughput of Connection Kit 1700 is almost 1,5 to 2 times higher than the best Powerline 1200 Mbit/s kits

The real data throughput with Powerline 1200 is around 400 Mbit/s while it is between 600 Mbit/s to 800 Mbit/s for a Connection Kit 1700
Yes, you can, but not recommended because Wi-Fi devices such as laptops, smart phones and tablets that are connected to Connection Kit 1700 can reduce the point-to-point video performance between the Connection Kit 1700 adapters. All the Connection Kit 1700 adapters in a Mesh network can be used as single band 802.11ac 5 GHz access points. The factory default Wi-Fi network name and password can be found in the label underneath the product.

The best usage of Connection Kit 1700 is to provide a high-speed data communication between two points for the devices that have got Ethernet ports.
Both of the Connection Kit 1700 adapters are identical. There is no master and slave configuration and you can connect any of them to your modem/router and any of them to your devices that have got an Ethernet port.
Connection Kit 1700 uses only 5 GHz and it is compatible to IEEE 802.11ac with an advantage of using UNII-2 (Ch.52-64) and UNII-2-Extended (Ch.100-112) bands in priority.

There are mainly three 80 MHz blocks available in Europe on 5 GHz. Most of the devices are capable of running only on one band, which is UNII-1 (Ch.36-48). That’s why the UNII-1 band is relatively the most crowded band with harmful interference that lowers the Wi-Fi performance of the devices that are running on that band.

However, Connection Kit 1700 is capable of using both of three channels where available and prioritizes using the UNII-2 (Ch.52-64) and UNII-2-Extended (Ch.100-112) bands a.k.a. DFS Channels on 5 GHz that are relatively less crowded compared to UNII-1, to provide best available performance and speed between the Connection Kit 1700 adapters.
Please make sure your Wi-Fi devices (laptops, mobile phones, tablets ...) support the 5 GHz band.
Please change the Wi-Fi channel that is being used by the Connection Kit 1700 adapters. Please login to the web management interface by typing the URL to the address bar of your browser (http://kit1700duo.local) and change the “Channel” at the “WIRELESS > Wireless Settings” menu to any of the channels 36, 40, 44 or 48.
Ch.100-112 (UNII-2-Extended) can be used by the aviation, military etc. radars. If the Connection Kit 1700 detects any radar signal between Ch.100-112, both of the Connection Kit 1700 adapters switches to Ch.36-48 band which is free from the radars. This operation is mandatory by the regulation law in EU.
The wireless signal level between the Connection Kit 1700 adapters is not good enough to provide more than 10 Mbit/s. It is recommended to locate the Connection Kit 1700 adapters closer to each other.
The Connection Kit 1700 adapters cannot communicate to each other.

Please make sure both of the Connection Kit 1700 adapters are switched on and Power LEDs are solid white. It is also recommended to locate the Connection Kit 1700 adapters closer to each other.
Please keep the Reset button gently pressed (for instance using a paperclip) at the back panel of your Connection Kit 1700 adapter until the LEDs get flashing. You need to reset both of your Connection Kit 1700 adapters to have the kit running with factory defaults.
