My WIFI router is in a room upstairs and had previously been connected to the master socket, but yesterday I plugged it into the test socket as a solution to slow internet speeds. The internet speed have picked up but unfortunately I have got no connection on my socket downstairs, which has worked fine with a phone plugged in for several years until today (the first time I have tested it since plugging the broadband into the test socket).
Could my actions have caused this, and are there any solutions suggested? It is not a fault with the phone either as I tried another and it did not work.
Any help appreciated,
Hi grizzlybear and welcome
When you use the test point, it isolates all other internal wiring.
If you've replaced the removable cover from the master socket and it still doesn't work, then it sounds like a wire has become detached from the rear of the removable section
Glad to hear that 🙂
