I'm curious if you have any opinions about the WiFi stacks for the Marvel Armada and Qualcomm IPQ40xx. Any trees I should be barking up for better performance? We have had some complaints in higher interference areas...

These devices have the best WireGuard performance per dollar for Althea's use case so we're deploying them pretty heavily.
