Only 1 port working on 2 boxes

This is our 1st year we more boxes than 1.  We got them used and only the far right port works.   Can we get all the boxes hooked up?  If so, how?  

My husband was thinking we could but like a ethernet splitter or something.

The workaround is a RJ45 splitter (not an Ethernet switch)- something like this:

Connect a SHORT cable from the splitter to the working RJ45 and use the other port to go to the next controller.  That should be considered a fix to get you through the season.  After the end of the season, repair or replace the jack.

Hi, do you know where there might be instructions on how to replace the jack?  I couldnt find any on line.  I'm sure my husband can do it, but would be nice to make sure we dont mess anything up.  

 

Thank you for the other link!!
