Hi.
I have installed an app in my mobile phone (samsung note 5) called POF (it's a dating app).
The incredible thing that is happening is that while I'm using the app my wifi is turned off for about 2 minutes. That happens every 5-10 minutes while using the app! How is that possible?
The wifi disappears for everyone, not just the mobile phone!
The router is TP-LINK archer c60, latest firmware version.
The only possible explanation I can think of is that the app must be using a service/protocol/etc. that is not allowed by the router's firewall and as a deffense mechanism the router turns the wifi off for 1-2 minutes.

Is it possible to make something in the router to avoid that from happening? What might be the cause? Is there a way to test it? Thank you.
