My son has one ethernet connection in his room coming from the ActionTec router. He would like a second connection but I don't want to run a new line up to his room as it will be a big job. What alternatives do I have? He also has a high definiton stb in his room. What is the purpose of the ethernet port on the rear of the stb?

The port is not active on the STB. As for a second port you can get just a network hub and put it back there. You don't need anything with dhcp or anything just a plain 100 base dumb network hub.
