Good that it works. For my TV I used to use a pair of Netegear sender and receiver on the electrical wire and while it mostly worked, I had the occasional glitch (Netflix specifically would occasionally stop). But then the TV firmware's gotta be the worst written software ever so not sure if it was about the network cabling... doesn't do it much nowadays tough that it's connected via wireless.
As of the router, anything supplied by any internet provider has a a 99% likelihood of sucking big time - as they tend to get the absolute cheapest stuff around and rebrand it to keep costs down. It's usually a surprise they work at all.
At the risk of sounding like a commercial, ASUS routers tend to beat anything else for these kind of issues and are usually a much worth upgrade also in terms of security and flexibility.
