System disappearing / stops transmitting

I have a DMK box connected to my NMEA 2000 network and it is having major issues. It will transmit data for about 3-5 seconds and then stop for 30 seconds or so. It does this for all types of traffic - NMEA 2000, DMK heartbeat, and NMEA 0183 GPS (I have the GPS model).

I've reset it to factory defaults, and even with it's own default SSID it does the same thing. I've reconfigured it to use Infrastructure mode back on my WiFi network, and the same problem.

I've disconnected the NMEA 2000 network as well to make sure it is not bus traffic, but it does the same thing even if it is only getting power and doing it's own thing internally.

Is this a software issue, or a bad unit?
