Chromecast cannot conect to new access point WAC540

Hi all, 

I recently installed a new WAC540 access point. All is working fine.

BUT we have a Chromecast dongle that cannot connect to it (used to work fin with the oldest access point)

I have reset the Chromecast, triple check the passcode and everything, but it just cannot connect, no error mentioned. 

Any idea is there is a setting in the WAC 540  to allow this connection?

Thank you in advance

Found out that the Chromecast does not support 802.11w so in the SSID settings, 802.11w has to be set as optional
