Hi,
I have just run a cat6 lan cable from my downstairs router to my upstairs man cave. The one cable plugs in my PS4 and gives me super fast gaming. the question is, what do I need to buy to now get another cat6 cable to my PC so they are both connected via cable?
Many Thanks.

You need to buy a small switch. Something like this will be fine

Plus you will need 2 patch leads. 1 for your PC and one for your PS4. The new lan cable plugs into the switch and the two patch cables plug into the switch and then one into your PC and one into your PS4. Make sure that you order long enough patch leads / cables to reach from your switch to your PS4 / PC
