Setup Sonos Boost with Google Wifi

I setup a Google Wifi mesh system with 3 pods. I purchased a Sonos Boost after I setup my Google Wifi system. I have one, main, Pod downstairs and then have the other 2 Pods upstairs. I purchased a Sonos One SL, a Sonos One, and a Sonos Beam. They are all downstairs, and are located near the main Pod. I connected all Sonos speakers to my Google Wifi system prior to purchasing the Sonos Boost. I looked at the back of the main Pod for an open ethernet port that I can connect my Sonos Boost to, but there is not an open port. Do I need to purchase an additional Pod that I can place in the living room, and connect the Sonos Boost to it, or are there any other options for my current configuration?

An inexpensive Ethernet switch will give you more ports, about $20 for a decent one with 5 or 8 ports.

Something like these, do avoid ones on the Sonos incompatible hardware list though.

Thank you Stanley_4! I will check the Sonos incompatible list to be sure the switches you recommended are compatible.
