Google Home Mini devices disconnecting or being disconnected

Hi, I'm having a problem keeping my Google Home Mini devices connected to WiFi, and I don't quite understand the cause.

Router: AX68U
Merlin: 386.4 (and the version prior)
Wifi Band: 5Ghz

I have 3 such devices and they frequently and randomly, individually or together, show the same behaviour. I'll trigger one of them, and it will respond that it is not connected.

I've tried a complete reset using the best practice guide here, but it doesn't appear to have resolved the issue.
Previously tried manually assigning an IP also.

I have attached the relevant entries for one of them, from the most recent log. Being a relative novice, I only have a very basic understanding of each of the entries.
It looks like to me like possible trouble with either WPA handshakes during rekey or DHCP.

My other devices on 5Ghz don't appear to experience the problem, although I do notice some quick drops and reconnects sometimes, which I assume is the rekey. Is this normal?

Can anyone shed some light on what they think the problem might be please, or let me know if I've missed any information which might help?

I should add, I've tried a range of Wifi configs, various channels, 20, 40, 80 Mhz... All beamforming and Airtime Fairness off.

I've been battling a wifi disconnecting problem lately too.
What happens is wifi devices (usually 5ghz) lose connectivity despite being connected to the router. Sometimes the router has to be rebooted, sometimes only the device connected to it.

Today it happened again and this time I noticed all three Google Nest Mini's were offline.
I rebooted two, but not the third. Later when I checked the router log, the third one was mentioned repeatedly (192.168.4.239) in the syslog as seen below:
