Hub or switch to split ethernet?

I wonder if someone can answer a question for me,I have a TV downstairs connected to a homeplug which in turn connects to my router located upstairs via another homeplug. What I would like to do is get another ethernet connection (in other words have 2 or more ethernet sockets available)from the downstairs home plug,would a hub or switch (not sure which?) be the answer or would the only way be to add another homeplug downstairs? Hope this make sense, many thanks in advance RG

Roadgiant, I think the neatest most elegant solution would be to replace your downstairs homeplug with one that has two or three Ethernet ports in a single unit. If you agree that sounds like a good idea then post back the make and model number of the upstairs one and I'll see what's compatible with it.
