I have an RV180W that performs perfect for wired hosts and even remote IPSEC clients.
When clients are using Wi-Fi everything falls apart.
Clients as close as 10 feet away have trouble getting out to the internet. The problem is not consistent. Hosts will work for hours or days and then start failing.
I have the Wi-Fi set with AES channel 1. I have tested the area for other Wi-Fi signals that may interfere. I live in a remote area so there are no neighbors Wi-Fi to interfere. In fact the only wireless devices is the router.
When sitting next to the router the signal strength is -40 when 10 feet or more the signal drops to -70. At some times it disappears off the wifi analyzer screen.
This problem seems to have worsened after upgrading to the latest firmware 126.96.36.199
