ORBI keeps asking for WiFi password on 2.4GHz

I just got a new ISP and am trying to set up my ORBI Pro mini (SXR30) and 1 satellite (SXS30) as my main router.
I'm trying to also add some IoT devices and therefore separated my 2.4 GHz and 5G networks. Now my android smartphone constantly keeps asking me for my wifi password - extremely frustrating. I've searched online as well as this forum but found no good sollution. Any ideas?

What ever this means. On a bigger picture (without going into some fancy definitions), all the Orbi Pro 6 systems are supporting four different networks, each accessible over an SSID. For each network (each SSID), you can select the radio bands active, and of course set the wireless PSK key (the Wi-Fi password).

Referred the appropriate network, defined the password and set the correct security (supported by the wireless client)?

 

Difficult to guess what you had configured...

Under some conditions, for example if the wireless client was previously configured and established to another (older) security standard like WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal and you have changed the wireless access point e.g. to WPA3-Personal, one might have to "forget" the network and re-associate.

What's the firmware you are using? We need more setup/configuration information.
