I've been having an issue where my Asus ZenWifi XT8 will randomly lose WAN connection to my ISP's cable modem which is bridged mode. The only solution is to power cycle the router. I've also noticed what seems to be random reboots or something weird going on. For example, here's a small snippet of the log this morning where you can see it was working fine right up to 9:48AM this morning and then I noticed right at that time, my laptop dropped connection to the router and it seems there was a reboot or something happened? Obviously, the dates are wrong as the Asus router doesn't properly update the date/time until it's fully booted up and sets the correction time/date etc:

Is there anything I can do to determine why this is happening? These random WAN disconnections and reboots are happening every single day. I'm using the latest firmware with 1 node. I should also mention that when these WAN disconnections occur, I can still see the Wifi Network but when trying to log into them it tells me it's the wrong password. again, only solution when this occurs is power cycling the main router.
