      Broadband connection via booster

      I have a Sky Q box (2TB) and 2 mini boxes and I use BT broadband. Currently the main Sky Q box is connected via ethernet cable to the BT router and the minis connect via sky wifi and a sky q booster box.
      The BT wifi is enabled but the Sky Q boxes do not use it.

      I want to rearange so that the booster is connected to the BT router via ethernet cable and the main Sky Q box and the minis then connect via sky wifi.

      Is this possible, can the sky q booster be used as an internet connection box?

      I have now tried it and this configuration does work.

      BTW my system is using 5ghz, I had thought it only used 2.4ghz if not using Sky broadband.
