No, you can't use a double adaptor you woukd need gigabit ethernet switch. This will give you additional ethernet outlets. Have a quick search on line. Various capacity ones available. Maybe a 5 port is all you need. You woukd then have 4 available ethernet connections, the 5th would plug into the spare port on the Hub.

If you have a BT TV subscription then the TP-Link range like a TL-SG105/8 would be a good option as they handle well the multi-cast transmission streams that the likes of BT Sport use whereas others might not and that can cause problems for your other attached devices.
