    Restart the router from time to time.
    Use the 2.4ghz wifi network as opposed to the 5ghz ones.
    Play with the channel settings on the 2.4ghz network. Keep changing it until you find one that works well from your room.
    For non videos/downloads, switch to 3G on your phone and hotspot it to your laptop.

    I don't know what you've purchased but a lot of things don't sound right here. You purchased a device off eBay that is costing you £24 per month and claims to offer fibre speeds and unlimited data? Or did you just buy a portable router? I've never heard of Air Internet but a product purchased off eBay is not going to affect the cable going to your house. You are also unlikely to be able to just pick it up and move elsewhere, you won't have an ISP providing a connection to your house. This is all very odd

    Sometimes routers stop working when the capacity is too high, in this case unplug the router from the electrical source and wait for a few minutes before turning it on again. If it doesn't work check the router's connection to make sure that everything is connected correctly. You can follow these instructions 192-168-1-1.one to do it quickly. Then you should check the connection of the network cable als, it may possibly be conducted incorrectly. Hope it helps.
