Symptoms and Issues

When using any real-time applications such as Whatsapp Video Conference, zoom video conference, or youtube live, etc. the image freezes every FEW minutes for 4 to 6 seconds then resumed automatically. I tried changing to different wireless settings and using different firmware versions (upgrade and downgrade), the issue still exists.

I fall back to previously using Synology router the issue was gone (all default WIFI settings).

Any resolution or I should have hardware replacement? Thank you very much.
