Trying to solve problems without logic is going to lead to a lot

There's nothing wrong with that.

If that's the case then your RADIUS server wouldn't see anything.
So you can rule that one out.

In extreme cases, network MTU stopping larger requests getting
through. But I'd still expect to see another requests from the
client before that could even slightly become a possibility. So
rule that out as well.

Hope you find it. As I said, unless all your clients are identical
and, say, did a system update at the same time, you can probably
rule them out as well. So I'd personally investigate the AP first.
Have you restarted it?  Try a spare AP / different model / etc.
Read the logs to see what is actually happening.
