Don't want to sound like a party pooper but it's been repeated 100's of times that WLAN2 is for Radar detection and should not be used as a regular AP. It does work but has no antennas and is very limited. Because it is not a true AP I doubt if you will ever see any improvements to the status.

Interface wlan2 is not meant to have any clients connected, also has no external antennas.

It was only meant to listen for DFS radar detection. Set wireless network mode to disabled.

A milliwatt is not a lot of power. I assume your connected devices have to be reaaaaally close to the router.

That's cool, and thank you. Disabled it and no issues. :)
