I have my RV130W setup on a bridge to test and set up. Settings are identical to other wifi router in network apart from address settings, but the RV130W wifi will shutdown internet access. Other wifi router keeps connection. Can anyone help?
When I first connect to the network I get internet access. Then after an indeterminate amount of time, when I try to navigate to any website it just hangs. I can navigate to the router management page, but not to the outside world. The image below is a screenshot of the log from the router at the time this happens. I have also updated the firmware per instructions on a forum.
Any ideas would be welcome.
I've seen this problem as well, it can be easily triggered by load testing the wifi with a sustained load for a short time using something like Totusoft's LAN Speed Test with a large chunk of data to and from a NAS share.
Once it happens, the router's management page and the local network are still accessible, but access to the WAN connection goes dead and the logs register nothing. WAN DHCP can be released and renewed, diagnostic ping tests will pass from the router interface but web browsing is dead.
I've stripped down various wifi features but nothing stops the gateway WAN routing from going dead under load.
I've used RV130's at a few sites without issues (months of uptime etc) for a while now, picked up one of these RV130W's to eval and thought it was defective or a bad power adapter that wasn't scaling up under load etc. I confirmed it wasn't pulling anywhere near the power adapter's limits (< 10w on a meter) under sustained wifi load, tried multiple power adapters and various forms of resets / reprogram / re-flash methods. Nothing would eliminate the issue thus far although I've only been testing it off and on for a couple days now in my test environment.
I have other APs on the same network to isolate it to the gateway WAN routing going dead despite routing within the LAN being ok. Basically intensive wifi use seems to destabilize the WAN routing, while the wifi AP portion continues to function normally.
