I have an Asus RT-AX86S running 388.2_2 that briefly (1-2 minutes duration) drops connection quite regularly, might be every day. If i'm honest i don't think it's related to the firmware and i suspect it's a configuration issue (i.e. my fault).

Here's what going on in the log (I have noticed that the time was set incorrectly - it was an hour out - i've rectified that now):

It's probably an ISP issue but we'd need to see the log prior to this point in time.
 
Here's a chunk of the log from before, it's weird because it jumps from 10th may to 5th of may back to 10th again.

5th May 2018 is the default date the router has when it powers on and before it's been able to obtain the correct date and time from the internet.

Your router rebooted. There is no indication that it was manually/automatically rebooted or that it crashed, so it appears to have been powered off for a couple of minutes. Check your power cables.

Thanks Colin. That's really interesting and makes sense from a behaviour perspective (with a few things).

You may also want to invest in an inexpensive UPS battery backup... putting your router on this (as well as your modem) will save you a lot of grief if your grid suffers from momentary spikes/brownouts... ;)
