I suspect your problem is Protected Management Frames being required, set this to one of the other two available settings as it's not needed unless you want to use AX mode.

Also try turning off Target Wake Time and Universal Beamforming. General best practice is to leave Universal Beamforming off.

Lastly you should ideally set the channel with to 20Mhz and use channels 1, 6 or 11 depending on which works best for you.

This works for me:
