5Ghz isn't great with building materials in between the router and client. There could be some 5Ghz interferences on the 880L.

I presume that if you tested VPN on wired or 2.4Ghz, it may not exhibit this stability issue. I had the 880 connected last week and part of this week. Had a DIR-868L and Asus EA-66N both bridge to the 880L 5Ghz. Both running thru one wooden all. Signal was good for having building materials however distance was about 15 feet.

 I tried having one client on 5Ghz band and that worked fine. It seems like 880L couldn't handle all the traffic. QoS helped a bit, but not much. I've never had the need to deal with the bridges or extenders and wanted to rely on one router. In any case I've sold 880L already and sticking with R8000 for now. This is my second attempt to switch from Netgear to Dlink (868L as well) and they just can't seem to provide the same performance and features as Netgear. Dlink needs to up the ante.

Ok. Well Sorry it didn't work out. D-Link seems to do well however there maybe other issues else where that could be introducing problems. If you've noticed two different models not operating as expected, then there could be a common cause that lies else where. There have been some issues with various router models, and features however D-Link has been quick to fix them when reproduced. The 880L for me is working great. Going to get it back in operation after a few other models need testing.

Good luck in your endeavors.  ;)

880L would be fine if you have a few devices, but in my case I have 15 wireless devices some are streaming HD video (sometimes at the same time) and obviously there is a lot of traffic going on. Extenders are not going help the problem for me, but having extra band helps to balance the traffic.

I recommend for future needs, split up the devices on to a another wireless AP. Having that many on a home router can and will exceed bandwidth limits technically and can cause problems. WiFi can only handle certain amounts of devices per radio then the bandwidth will become saturated and would probably start to exhibit Lag. You have to realize that even though your connecting 15 devices and have 1 connection between the router and device, in addition to this, there are many other connections going on as well, per each device and the apps they maybe using. One browser can have many connections thru the router to one web site, even though it's one application on the one device. This maybe your common factor in this since you state that you tried a different model D-Link router before. You maybe trying to apply too many devices per one router where you may need some additional wireless APs to help spread out the band width. We seen this before with other users having many client devices connected to only one AP or router. They are only designed to handle so many devices.
