    Some of the ways are:
    1)You could shift the modem upstairs (for that you have to disconnect the incoming wire from the telephone pole and place the modem near your computer and connect the incoming wire to the modem through the splitter, then purchase a long RJ 11 telephone cable available in the electronic stores and connect the phone kept downstairs.
    2)You could take a long RJ45 (that is, Ethernet cable) and connect the modem in the ground floor to the computer in "upstairs". Even up to 100 meters long cable there will be no loss of signal, so I have heard.
    3)You could buy a Type-2 modem that supports WiFi, buy a USB WiFi adapter for your desktop and use it.

    The best course of action is to visit the nearest Telephone Exchange, where you got the internet, get hold of a lineman, explain things to him and ask for help. They will do it, officially or un-officially, in either case pay the lineman a reasonable charge.
