Can't DHCP upstream IP sometimes on 19.07.8

Hi. I've been a longtime user for about 10 years now. I moved to a TP-Link Archer C7 v5 with OpenWrt 19.07.8 r11364-ef56c85848 / LuCI openwrt-19.07 branch git-21.189.23240-7b931da about 18 months ago now.

For the past 6 months or so, I've noticed that every 2-8 weeks, Internet connectivity goes down. When I login to the web UI, I find that the IPv4/IPv6 uplink addresses are gone. There aren't any service outages in my area that I'm aware of, but resetting the cable modem doesn't work. Instead, I have to reboot each device twice, then I can get an IP address again.

I have no idea what's up, so I tried the nuclear option of periodic reboots; unsurprisingly, this doesn't help. A few hours after a reboot, it happened again. I'm not sure how exactly to debug this further. Trying to get a DHCP address from the cable modem on other devices also fails. I think I need to release the DHCP address from the OpenWrt device, but I'm not sure how to achieve this.

I've captured some logs when this happened, but I'm not sure if any of this is useful. What should I look for next time?

Thanks!

Before debugging this any further, please upgrade your system to a security supported version first, now (at least 22.03.5, but 23.05.0-rc3 would also be a reasonable choice). The archer c7-v5 has no problems running a current version, so you really should do so, nor are there any noteworthy config transitions (ath79 is still on swconfig, so that remains all the same) - maybe that already fixes your issues as a side effect.

When I last tried 21, the WiFi on the device didn't work, so I installed 19 and haven't experimented with it since. Next time I lose connectivity, I'll try upgrading and if that doesn't fix things, I'll report back.

Thanks!

The problem is, 19.07 has been out of security support for over two years now and it contains a number of pretty serious known/ unfixed security issues - it really needs to be upgraded or taken out of service.

The archer c7 (all variants >=v2) is bog standard ath79 hardware with ath9k+ath10k wireless, there are no known general issues with either of its wireless radios, while that doesn't rule out specific issues in combination with your environment/ devices (that's always a theoretical possibility), it will generally work and come up.

According to this, it doesn't work in AP mode on 5GHz? https://openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/archer_c7#ghz_wi-fi_not_working_as_ap_for_c7_v2_and_v5

This is the reason I downgraded from 21, as I recall, two years ago. If so, I might be at a dead end on this.
