my wireless router is on the second floor. Have ethernet cable from one of the ports from the back of the router to ground floor via cavity wall into a socket on the ground floor from where another cable connects to my desktop. but internet connection is weak and unable to access easily. should I be connecting the ethernet cable to the internt port of the router rather than any port? any other suggestion--thanks

most routers have five ports, one WAN/Internet port and 4 LAN ports.

the modem needs to connect to the WAN/Internet port

the computer should be connected to one of the four the LAN ports
