Found 23rd Dec 2016
I have 4 cables in my old Sky hub so what's the best solution? Why on earth would Sky reduce the amount of ports to 2 from 4?

​You might have come across as clever if you'd typed that right.
If using old router as a switch by connecting it to one of the new router ports remember to go into settings of the old router and disable DHCP....

Personally I'd just pick up a cheap gigabit switch
