Recently got a SOHO Mk3 for use in my RV. Works great so far with my AC791L hotspot, however while traveling I noticed I was getting about 10% packet loss not just to the internet but also just from my laptop to the SOHO.
I have WiFi 5 Ghz wan setup as priority 1 and 2.4 as 2 while the hotspot is 3. At home I have a 5 ghz network the RV connects to when there and some campgrounds have decent 2.4 ghz wifi. So when not around those networks they go into “Scanning” looking of those networks while the hotspot is used.
It seems when WiFi wan is scanning it’s causing the LAN WiFi on that same frequency to constantly lose packets every few seconds. If I move those wan connects to disabled the packet loss go away or if they are actively connected to the WiFi network there is no loss.
Is this a known issue? I imagine its because the single radio is trying to actively scan for networks and during that scan it can’t handle LAN traffic. Unfortunately for a mobile setup like RV or Boat this would be a common occurrence where WiFi wan is desired if available and cellular while moving, but having to manually disable WiFi wan is not ideal.
