iPhone connects to Netgear AX router, no internet access.

I have a Nighthawk RAX70 router with the latest firmware (V1.0.2.88).  I am also using a RAX40 in AP Modewired to the RAX70 via an ethernet cable.  I am using a single SSID for both 5GHz bands and the 2.4GHz band.


All of my device connect as expected except a couple of iPhones.  One is an iPhone 6.  The other is an iPhone 11.  They both have the latest IOS updates. I use the iPhone 11 in a number of different locations.  It works correctly everywhere except the location I recently installed the RAX70.  The phones connect to the router; however, they have no internet connection.  I have tried turning off the AX functionality.  this also does not help.


I have tried all the suggestions of rebooting, updating IOS, turning off and then on WiFi / Airplane mode.  I have tried resetting the network settings.  VPN is off.


Nothing is working.
