TV Box Blocks WiFi for All Devices

Hey everyone,

I have a small Android TV box (VONTAR X96) I bought from AliExpress, connected via WiFi to a TP-Link TL-WR741ND router.

When the TV box powers on, and connects to the router, I get a message under the network name: "Connected. No Internet.", meaning of course I cannot browse or get any other information from the internet.
Whenever this happens, after a few seconds all other devices in the house (phones, tablets etc.) are suffering from the exact same problem, except for a PC which is connected to the router via Ethernet.
The only temporary solution to this is connecting the TV box to the router via WPS. After a few seconds the message changes simply to "Connected", and the block is lifted from every device. Several hours later the problem returns, and I have to go through this procedure again.

I tried assigning static IPs to the TV box but this did not change anything. I also tried using an external USB WiFi stick, presumably to bypass the internal WiFi chip (don't know if this actually worked), but no dice.

Anyone know what is going on here?

Thanks a lot for helping!
