Wifi droping on one of my two Actiontec MI424WR routers

Hi, using the excellent guide here, I connected two Actiontec MI424WR routers: router A is Gen I (Rev) and connects to the ONT so I get 1 gbps, wifi turned off, home office wired plugged into LAN.

Router B is Gen F (Silver) and I only use that for wifi in part of my house, connected to Router A via LAN ethernet.

Whereas for the past many years, wifi has been fine on Router B, now the same devices drop after a couple of minutes. I'm able to connect quickly, but keeps on dropping.

Any ideas as to what could be causing it? Again, the same devices (iPhones) on Router B wifi has worked fine for years.

Thank you in advance!

Seems to be solved. I started at square one of that doc and made sure that there were absolutely no connections on either router except for the configuration PC. Must have been an IP conflict.

In the router with Wi-Fi enabled, you disabled SON?
