Restart Google WiFi to connect to Apple Airplay

I have this onn Walmart brand Roku TV model G812X, and about once a week I have to restart the WiFi network to get the iPad to Airplay, show up and connect to the TV. I have tried checking the TV network settings, software updates, restarting the TV, unplugging the TV. The Internet connection is fine. Never any error on the iOS device or the TV itself, it just sits there until it says it can't connect. iPad is running the latest stable version of iOS. 

So far the only fix working is restarting the WiFi network, I have the Google Nest WiFi Pro. I have contacted their support as well, if they added a Reboot Schedule as an setting for their WiFi routers it could possibly resolve the issue.
