4k boxes and ethernet out

Do the Arris 4k boxes have a ethernet jack to allow for an ethernet out connection?

Since both the Cisco device and the Arris device have only one Ethernet port, I see no way to add other Ethernet devices to that location without a switch.

Ethernet is bi-directional.

If you want to expand your network from the location of the Arris device, simply place an Ethernet switch between it and the rest of your network.

Can I do this without a switch? My current setup is wall --> CIS box --> Android box.

Also note that your switch needs to support IGMP snooping for TV to work correctly as it uses Multicast to send the IPTV signals.  Not a lot of home networking equipment will support that, so you'd likely need a managed business class switch.

A decent ethernet switch will work. Don't need to spend a fortune on a switch that'll be overkill. I've got a Zyxel switch in my setup though a Netgear gigabit one would work fine also.
