Wondering if anyone's seen this issue before:
Connected to Cable Modem: RT-N16 [1.28.7500 RT K26 USB Std]
Wireless Ethernet Bridge: RT-N12B1 [1.28.0500.5 RT-N K26 Tiny]
NVRAM was reset on upgrade and settings manually configured afterwards.
Wireless is running in AUTO, WPA2+AES security — 40MHz width, Channel 1 (least crowded according to InSSIDer).
Wireless stats on the bridge are roughly hovering around:
RSSI -47 dBm
Noise -82 dBm (yes, the noise is fairly high)
Signal Quality 35
Every once in a while, the wireless rate (normally hovering around 270mbps to 300mbps) on my RT-N16 will drop down to 11mbps and just get stuck there. Going to Basic->Save or doing a disable/enable of wireless will pop the rate right back up to normal. I've tried with smaller width (20MHz), different channel (11), WDS instead of Bridge mode, and turning Interference Mitigation on/off, but this happens pretty regularly (about once a night) and seemingly at random (I don't notice it until my game pings start skyrocketing and downloads slow to a crawl). Anybody know why this type of behavior would occur?
