I'm exploring the possibility of getting a Sonos Zone player 90 to connect to my home stereo system in my living room. The Sonos system requires a hard wired ethernet internet connection. Do Uverse STBs have an ethernet port that can be used for a hard wired internet connection?

Yes, one Ethernet port in back, as long as you are not installed for UV with Ethernet (that is an option over coax).

Thanks for the response. I'm connected via coax- which leaves that ethernet connection free. Cool- the Sonos ZP 90 might be in my future...

I've used the Ethernet for my old laptop when my WiFi would act up (new laptop now).

I have 2 options for plugging in my uverse, and am trying to move my tv from one site to the other and am struggling. the original site had the RG plugged into an ethernet cable--the ATT person who installed everything for me initially said that when I loved it to the 2nd site that I would just go through the coaxial cable at the 2nd site instead of the ethernet cord, but i can't seem to get internet unless the RG is plugged into that green ethernet cable. So, if i move everything to the 2nd site do I then need a cord going from the STB to the RG in order to get that green "link" light on the STB for TV to work? Or do i set up RG without ethernet and with coax cable? If so, can someone walk me through it?

"If there is continuity in your coax network you can connect the STB to the connector on the other side of the room. Leaving the RG where it is."
This is exactly what happened! I thought I had it all figured out, but didnt realize that the coax cable next to the ethernet at the original site needed to be plugged into the RG (when I disconnected it I just assumed it was connected to the TV). As soon as I got that cord plugged back onto the back of the RG I got picture across the room at the new location of the TV RG stays, TV moves, living room rearranged. So thankful! You're awesome!
