i have TL-WR720N and i have to restart every 3-4 hours because phones get disconnected from wifi constantly and cant connect again if i do not restart

i thought it was some kind of time limit but it is not a case, it is just random.

there are only 2 phones connected nothing else.

is there a solution for this issue?

if you can, do a site survey to see what other SSID's are in your area.
try manually setting your router to a fixed band (maybe one less congested).

That is a pretty low end router. It may just be time to replace it. You need to have a wired connection from a laptop or PC so that you can see what the log on the router says is happening. It may be a power supply problem or the unit could be overheating. You will have to get more info.

Login to the router via the wired connection. There is a "System Tools" tab. The system log is an option in that menu according to the user's manual.
this is it, i cant see the problem here, is there any?

Lines 1 - 10 are boot messages. It is difficult to tell when they actually happen because the router doesn't remember the date/time. It is LIKELY that is is around the 1400 time because the next item is at 14:15. It is interesting that one device in lines 12 - 14 has to ask for an IP address three times in less than an hour. That is odd, but not specific of any thing.

IF you didn't power cycle the router, then it might be spontaneously rebooting. It would be unusual for there to be so little in the log unless it had been rebooted recently.

i have to reboot 3-4 times/day because, if i do not do that i can't get access to the internet via wifi, this issue persists for years already.

also if there is only one device connected to the wifi, this issue doesn't happen, but if there is more than one device connected, i have to restart in a couple of hours or minutes.

it usually goes like this, i just get disconnected from the internet via wifi and phone indicator says, wifi/connected no internet. and if i try to reconnect it takes a lot of time and saying obtaining IP address but still goes to no internet, the same happens if i restart the phone or use "forget network" option.
