Extra internet port for homeworkimg

 I am currently working from home and will be for the foreseeable future.  My work phone has to be plugged into the internet. I have a router downstairs but want to set up a home office in the spare bedroom - is it possible to have an internet port in put in the bedroom?

Simplest and the best option is to run Cat5e (or better) ethernet cable from a port on the Hub up to the spare bedroom and add a switch/wifi combo unit.

If for some reason that isnt possible, there are other options to try.  If the Phone is your landline and needs plugging into the Hub and is needed in the new study - then you will need another option
