S8 Ultra wifi not finding my Normal wifi only my guest net.

My new tablet does not find my wifi at all, fresh just out from the box.

I have a lot of wireless products in my home NONE have failed to find the SSID of my network!

My network is a Asus Lyra Mesh running one 2,4 GHz and two 5 GHz channels. (One SSID)

The interesting thing is I find and connect my Guest net (on 2,4 GHz). (GuestSSID) .  To even more on a hotel I just visited I could connect to their 5 GHz wifi on channel 112. 

At home if I run "wifi analyzer" app on the tablet my home network is not found. Same app on my phone I is the network.

I have tried "all" tricks in the book to no avail. Including;

-Factory reset of my home network

-Factory reset my tablet

- Update with latest firmware.

-Tried remove all encryption.

-I have renamed my wifi to "Test"

-I have tried changing channels; 

My Lyra (in Sweden) can use channels;
1-13 (2.4 GHz)
100,104,108,112, 132, 136 (5 GHz-1)
36,40,44,48,52,56,60,64 (5 GHz-2)
I start to think the tablet is incompatible with ASUS Lyra mesh routers!
Does anyone out there have a similar Mesh router and connected it with this tablet?
Any other smart ideas? Any help appreciated!

Hello !

I have exactly the same problem and also with Asus Lyra Mesh in Sweden.

As you mention, guest network works fine but that's only on 2.4.ghz...

PLEASE, if you find a solution please post it here..

Thank you for support. Turned out to be a router problem despite all... 

ASUS support suggested a factory reset of router AND use of their new mobile app "ASUS router" instead of their original "Lyra router" app, which I used previously during router installation. You need latest availible firmware ( or later) on all Lyra to run the new app (allows set up of AiMesh also on the Lyras). I also ran the set up on the tab, also per ASUS suggestions. 

Now the tab finds my SSID on all bands and I am a very happy user!
