Welcome to this user forum.
It will have to connected by some means. Either by a direct connection, or an Ethernet connecting socket which the builders should have provided, or as a last resort, powerline adapters.
New builds should have Ethernet sockets near the Openreach ONT, like this.
the problem is i cant have my sky q box next to the front door, and thier are no ethernet sockets anywhere in the house its crazy
Then you will have to use powerline adapters to link the modem, to the home hub. Then you can put the home hub wherever you want.
These are the fastest https://shop.bt.com/products/bt-broadband-extender-flex-1000-kit-080219-BB4X.html
ok thanks, easy to set up?
Yes, just plug one unit by the Opennreach modem, and the other one where you want to place the home hub, and just use the supplied Ethernet cable to connect them up, The home hub end must be connected to the red network socket on the home hub.
You will only be able to use one of the Ethernet port on those units, as they are on the WAN side not the LAN side.
They use the mains wiring to communicate.
You may find them £10 cheaper by shopping around.
