Could this be used if you already have TP-Link 500mb adapters? Would you need to use 2 ports on the router?

Plug n play! You've already made the powerline network so no you will not need another distributor from the router.

I thought I'd read somewhere that mixed speed adapters wont work. Eg a 500mb adaptor for the router and a 200mb elsewhere. Could be wrong though.

Good price for a 4 port IMO.

Do you mean are they compatible with tp link adapters? I'd be interested to know that too

Yes, or even if they can be used along side. I didn't know if you would need to have one TP adapter and one linksys adapter linked to the main router to make it all work, or just a single TP adapter.

I thought that if you had 500 adapters and then added 200 adapters the whole lot runs at 200. Correct me if i am wrong.

Pretty sure you're right (lowest common denominator, and no way the 200 can adapt UP to 500.

Personally I would not mix brands, but at least with the same manufacturer there'd be reasonable chance of interoperability despite speed difference.

Cannot conclusively say mix would not work, of course, just that I would assume the worst.

Apologies if that sounds very negative but I am not the one who'd have to sell the 'hardly used', but open box unit.

it makes no odds if you mix brands or speeds.

There are 3 types of Homeplugs: Homeplug 1.0, AV & AV2.

So long as you stick to the same homeplug type, it will all work fine.

Make sure your fastest adapter is plugged into the router and away you go

If anyone has some old 14 Mbps HomePlugs, I'm looking out for some... (sorry, bit off topic but you never know)
