You could try putting the router upside-down on the ceiling,

consumer devices are generally designed for passive cooling with air
drawn in via side vents and out at the top).
It's very common to see things mounted upside on the ceiling (whether
or not the particular device is cool enough, I wouldn't know, and we
live in a hot country - if you stand in a room on a ladder, you sure
notice that your head get uncomfortably warm).
The next common thing is inside the roof space, just sitting on top of
the ceiling. Again, overheating is a distinct possibility, but there's
the opportunity to use fan cooling that might have been too much of a
noise annoyance inside a room.
Then there's mounting vertically on a wall (like a doorbell chime).
You get maximum airflow over it, then.
