The main box media server connections

hi I have had the food one system for 2 months now. I have the gigabit connection. I was really excited about the food one because I live in an apartment and there in no way to run a wire into my bedroom. (I'm an electrician so I know how to run wire) but unfortunately my one moni in my room gets poor signal. It might be because everyone in this complex has WiFi so they are interfearing with each other. Anyway I considered buying the Google WiFi mesh routers. But they are expensive. So today I moved the router into my son's room and I plan on getting Ethernet cables for his Xbox and fios one mini. 

So I have a few questions. First can I replace the xoaxil cable going from the splitter to the main media server with an Ethernet cable? And will that make a difference? And by putting my son's Xbox and fios mini box on Ethernet will that help fix my issue with my bedroom box having poor connection and jittering?

The coax going to the server and router will stay in place. Then run the ethernet from the LAN (yellow) ports on the router to the mini.
