AX3000 Can't connect to hidden Wi-Fi

As above, I have used my Beryl Ax as a repeater for my phone Hotspot, a local free open wifi both without any issues. Connects quickly. The free wifi has a captive portal that I access on my phone and it then releases for the Beryl. All acts as expected

At work we have 2 wifi. One is “public” with a stupid all lowercase password posted everywhere. And the second is a hidden with a slightly more complex password.

My phone, tablet and laptop easily and quickly connect to both networks and switch between them when one drops in quality.

I cannot get my Beryl to connect to hidden at all. I got it to connect once briefly and then it disconnected. So the router sees it as an option but always fails. The “open” wifi connected a few times but only after a dozen attempts and reboots. Then after disconnecting, I cannot reconnect.

Firmware 4.5
Repeater function.

VPN is off and advguard is off.

Attaching log from the last connection attempt hoping it’ll make sense to someone

I see kern warn kernal and dns buffer too small

Association Failure (Error) : The crucial part of the log is the association failure with Reason(10) . In the context of Wi-Fi networks, an association failure happens when a device trying to connect to a Wi-Fi network cannot complete the necessary handshake to establish a connection. Reason code 10 specifically refers to “Cannot support all requested capabilities in the Capability Information field”. This means the device’s requested capabilities (such as certain data rates or security protocols) aren’t supported by the access point.

So the biggest question: What does this hidden Wi-Fi uses as security?

Neither wifi will connect reliably so whatever it uses is the same across both.

I see the mt-3000 doesn’t support EAP could that be the issue? Is there a way to check this on one of the devices that does connect?

Are these devices managed by your work? Did they force you to install a certificate for example?

They do not. One is the public wifi for all employees and guests and is a very simple all lowercase password.

The second is a hidden network with also a laughably simple password none require any certificate or captive portals.

Here are the two networks from wifi analyzer on my Android

First is hidden

This is public

There are multiple channels avail and also a 5G variant.
