One Roku Express disconnects from Wifi, but the 2nd one doesnt.

I have 2 Roku Express units. Number 1 keeps disconnecting from the wifi -screen says "no connection". It only seems to happen when both Roku are being used at the same time. I've had both these units since 2020, and they have worked fine at the same time until last week.  The 2nd Roku has not disconnected at all. I have done all the reset options and it hasnt helped. The signal strenght is listed as excellent,  Internet download speed is 250mbps. Neither unit or modem has been mover closer or farther apart. 

When #1 does reconnect, it only last a few minutes and disconnect again saying "no connection" - this keeps going on until I turn it off and walk away. l I also will turn on #2 Roku, and watch a movie on my laptop, or use a Kindle, to see if #2 would loose connection, everything works fine- Nothing else disconnects. Could it be that Roku #1 went bad and needs to be replace?

I have done all the resets fixes multiple times. Nothing has made a difference. As mentined in the post, I have had both these units for over 2 years, this disconnecting problem only effects one of the units and just started happening recently.
