Wifi streaming + private listening dropouts

With my current wifi setup I can stream video smoothly to my TCL TV using the TV speakers  - or I can play content from a USB drive and use private listening with phone/airpods with good audio that stays in sync.   However if I stream content over wifi and use private listening at the same time, I get audio dropouts every few minutes and often the audio stays badly out of sync until I disconnect and re-connect - sometimes it even detects the problem and pauses itself.

Should this work reliably with a better wifi router or access point or do I need to do the more difficult work of pulling an ethernet cable to the TV?   My router is currently on the floor above the room with the TV and would be difficult to move any closer.
