Re: I tried to move my router upstairs to get better signal but it didn’t work

Go to solution

By pressing the wires into the insulation displacement connector with (ideally) the correct tool or failing that a very thin bladed screwdriver.

I have the tools for it.
Do I connect both of them to terminal 2 or 5 or one of them to terminal 2 and one of them to 5?
Please help

Correctly wired. Did you replace the frontplate at the master before testing at the extension?

It was just a long shot. You either need to get somebody in to sort you wiring out or go for plan B,  powerline adaptors.
