R7000P started suddenly having issues connecting devices on 5GHz WIFI band

Model is around 2 years old.  Typically works great.  I have 400+ speeds from Charter and a LOT of devices on WIFI.  It has been no problem except for far reaches of upstairs and I have to switch to 2.4.  But all of a sudden certain devices can't connect.  Apple 12s saying the 5 doesn't have internet connection when a device right next to it does.  Odd all around.  Thoughts on what is happening?

   Recent iOS update?  Is Access Control enabled on the router?

I did have a recent iOS update, and yes Privacy control was added.  I will see if turning that back off helps.  Thanks for pointing me to that.
