New router or Mesh System

Hi,

I currently trying to find the best solution to my wifi problem, I have done my own research but I'm struggling with the amount of options available. We have sky broadband with the old sky router (the one with the smiley face light on it), and although the connection is consistent downstairs, when you reach my room at the back of the house it gets patchy. Its a 2 bed terraced rental that has neighbouring houses born in 1800s, so I'm guessing our house is of a similar age.

The options I'm looking at are either a new router or keep the old one and get a netgear orbi system. I have tried a wifi range extender but it didn't seem to do anything other than take up a plug socket. I am leaning towards the orbi system but the price is making me worried that it could be a waste of money.

thank you for your time
