Can I plug an Ethernet cable in to the back of sky q box to run a to link from? The hub only has two Ethernet ports and I need to get internet into a man cave

Don't know much about Sky Q systems (other people do) but, to me, the "obvious" solution would be to add a 4-port or 8-port ethernet switch and connect that to one of the hub ports and then connect all the other (non-Sky Q?) stuff to that (this is a standard ethernet expansion method!). Get a Gigabit switch for preference, rather than a cheaper 100Mbit version, as this will be more "futureproof" - shouldn't cost more than £15-20, and you will also need at least one more Cat 5E or Cat 6 ethernet cable to connect the hub to the switch.
