There are a lot of bad implentations of specs out there for Wifi, especially on home routers. Also, the space is really complex now with multiple power management modes, roaming hand-offs, etc so I'm not too surprised there is some funkiness with idle devices.It's basically sitting on my desk - router is about 6 feet away. I don't think it's a signal issue.
I think the router was killing the connection because it isn't seeing activity. The router's ui Is awful so I'm not really sure past that.
If you're 6 feet away, I'd recommend a cable - much more reliable in nearly every case
