What should we do?

Best Answer:

gypsy50309: Ask your ISP to provide long Ethernet cable and WiFi enabled router

WiFi router will broadcast WiFi signals, which can be picked up by smartphone, tablet, WiFi-enabled HDTV, gaming consoles like Xbox One or PS4 etc. in your home

If you're unable to use WiFi (usually on desktop devices), then use long Ethernet cable from your ISP or online: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001TH…

Other answer:

gypsy50309:
Is it a safety issue for a toddler? Can you put a dresser or something in front of the jack? Then you could run the phone line up to the top of the dresser, with little chance that the toddler could get caught in it and strangled. On top of the dresser, you would have your modem and wi-fi-router (possibly just a single small unit). Then you could access the internet in your apartment via wi-fi.

Similar precautions for the power cord(s).
