am having a problem trying to connect to the WiFi of a D-Link DIR-885L revision A1 with default settings
for the following clients:
Client1: Dell Inspiron 15 5000 running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
Client2: Sony Xperia XZ3 running Android 10

WPA2 -> Unable to retrieve DHCP?
WPA3 -> Unable to connect
Connecting both clients to Archer C7 1750 v2 running OpenWrt version 19.07.7 works with both WPA2 & WPA3
Connecting to the WiFi of the router itself works with DD-WRT, as well, as the original firmware, so it should not be a hardware issue.

Here is what I have tried:

Both versions 21.02.0-rc1 and 19.07.7
Various combinations of wpad (openssl and wolfssl)
Strage stuff encountered: Ununtu is showing the incorrect security settings...
When using WPA3 with wpad_basic_wolf_ssl it's saying the network has no security
When using WPA3 with wpad_basic_open_ssl it's saying the network has WPA2 security
I have attached logs from both the router and the client in the hopes that someone can understand what the issue is.

Just so you know I've been trying to get my 885L to work as a dumb AP for months and its still not working. I did manage to get my devices to get assigned an ip address by adding the line dhcp-relay x.x.x.x x.x.x.x in dnsmasq.conf but i cannot get internet connection. I've used tcpdump on the router and i see my dhcp requests coming from my wifi clients but at the dhcp server none of that traffic or dhcp request are seen. So something is preventing the the traffic from being forwarded from the 885L
