I too use Sky as my ISP and have a Sky router. It has four ethernet sockets on the back - as has every router i have owned - so you can plug your computer, your TV and two other devices in all at the same time. Bandwidth is a different matter. For video without buffering you need about 5Mbps so subtract that from your download rate and what is left over is available for your other devices. Not strictly true but near enough !
Whether or not you want all these cables running around your house is a different question and only you can answer that. Have you ever tried a wifi dongle on your computer ? My desktop has never, in several incarnations, had an internal wifi card and a dongle works very well, but I do live in a fairly small and certainly compact house with the router in almost the exact centre.
I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
