Things to check:

SSID and WPA2-AES values on both radios

Channel width

Disable any frequency lists and con rm the Station supports the AP operating frequency.

Due to the number of channels available in the 5GHz band, it can sometimes take several
minutes for a radio to connect. Especially if the AP is using a DFS frequency that requires a wait
time before transmitting.

Con rm radios are on rmware that supports mixed mode operation.  airOS 8+ for AC devices
and airOS 6+ for M devices.
