    Have you tried to restart the router and the fire tv box by switching them off and on again? Sometimes this can sort out WiFi problems.

    I would add a little hardware to eliminate the WiFi by using Ethernet adapter then you have options from the cheapest solution 20 ft CAT cable to best MoCA connection.

    Go into app manager and clear cache on all apps that you can.
    Restart Router and Firestick the same time.

    The Ethernet adapter will not make a big difference.

    I see you're running under 5 down? You need to either ramp up your speed from your carrier if you can afford it.
    If you're watching 1080p movies, you need all the bandwidth you can get.

    You running other things off the Same network. This is another reason to ramp up speeds.
