how to split ethernet

I have had to change to a new wireless router to repair an Internet connection fault. However my last Router had two LAN sockets which I needed as I was taking part in a Sam Knows survey where the second outlet is connected to a modem supplied by Sam Knows as part of the testing. Is there any method I can purchase an adapter which will split the outlet into two so that I can continue to use both Ethernet leads at once. Obviously I do not want to spend a fortune doing this but surely there is a simple method that somebody knows. As a final resort I suppose I could connect my Desk Top Computer by wireless with a dongle but I would prefer not to do this. All help sincerely appreciated

Google 'ethernet splitter'. I tried to post a link, but failed with this new system!
