Wifi on 5dmkIV totally unstable - assistance needed

I've been trying to connect my camera wirelessly with my Ubee cable router for days, without much success.

In a nutshell, the connection, when does happen, lasts 1-2min. Only a single time I have managed to connect the camera for good, without any disconnecting.

I tried:
1. Connecting on my wireless network manually with password
2. Using WPS button on the modem itself.

It takes several program and camera restarts to even see them connecting. Usually nothing happens.


a) Canon utility doesn't come up or recognize the camera actually connected.
b) The connection is there, I can access and do everything as normal, but disconnection happens after 1-2min. This is much more common than a).

I'm trying to figure out why my connection isn't stable once established?

My machine is Windows 10 PC, latest drivers, AMD motherboard, chipset, cpu, gpu. Latest Canon Utility v3, latest camera firmware.
