my PC won't connect to my ORBI 850 but does if guest network activated

my PC won't connect to my ORBI 850 

Firmware Version
V4.6.14.3_2.3.12 on the main network but if i activate the guest network it will.

Main network is set to 192.168.5.1 guest network  defaults to 192.168.2.1

I had no problems with the previous asus router with any of my equipment but this ORBI system is taking some time to get used too...

Any suggestions on how to get this PC connected. 

Thanks

When you activate Guest, are you connecting to that?  If so and you cannot connect to the Main SSID, check to make sure the security is set the same for both: WPA2-PSK [AES], for example.

Double checked all my settings and as far as security and anything else I can see everything is the same I am stumped all it shows when I try to connect is "no internet"

If you can take a screen shot of what your connection looks like for both when you connect to Guest versus the main SSID, like this, from Control Panel / Network and Sharing Center - click on Connections Wi-Fi (your SSID) to see the details - it will look similar to this:

I think a screen shot of both might be helpful.
