Internet setup at home: Optical cable, media converter, LAN RJ45, how to optimise?

Hello EF community,

I am trying to optimise the internet setup in my home by using the pre-install wall socket in my flat (RJ45 ethernet, coaxial and Fiber optics).
Issue: the actual location of my wifi router is not ideal and we tend to have poor network in the furthest bedroom in the flat. One would say move the wifi router or get a repeater but I'd like to get your help and opinions.

We have moved recently into a new flat and have been looking at the wire installation in my place. We are using UPC cablecom as internet provider and when we moved into the new flat they installed a WISI micro node to convert the optical cable flux to all the Cable port in the house.

Now the setup is fine, internet is working and UPC cablecom modem has to connect via a coaxial cable to the wall socket to get internet. In our flat, there is an electric panel where the optical box, the micro node, the coaxial hub and ethernet hub is all grouped. I cannot put my UPC connect box in that room because the Coaxial cable does not fit in the hub or anywhere else; meaning I have to plug it in one of the wall coaxial socket in the flat.

Question based on the attached pictures, how can I send Internet to all the Ethernet wall socket in the house? Would a media converter (optical to LAN RJ45) be a solution? I obviously want to be able to setup the wifi router in the center of my flat for best reach but I don't want to have cables crossing the flat...

Thank you in advance everyone!

Actual setup:
- UPC connect box: connects to internet and send it to the wifi router
- Wifi router: receives the internet from the UPC connect box; different devices are connect to it via RJ45 (NAS, homekit devices, PS4 etc.) and Wifi devices are connecting to the wifi router network and not the UPC connect box.

At the connect box from UPC i don't see a port for the fiber optics cable.

I got the fiber optics cable direct to the sunrise internet box , from there i got connections via wifi or LAN.

You will need the internet box to connect to the internet.........
