Acer Aspire ES1-411 Unreliable Wifi Connection

My Acer laptop's wifi connection has, for some reason, become unbelievably unreliable. It works fine when it is right next to the router but as soon as it is even 5m away it drops out and in, and in and out. It is mental.

I was previously using a wifi range extender but have turned it off because I thought it was confusing the signal or something. All the other devices in the house are connected fine. I have tried restarting my computer and the router and this hasn't worked.

I would appreciate straightforward, no bullshit answer to help sort this ASAP.
