WIFI trouble on WNDR4700 Rel 21.02.3 r16554

I needed an extra AP and so I dusted out a WNDR4700, upgraded it to Rel 21.02 using tftp and then configured as a switch on vlan1 for all ports and its works fabulous.

I am having trouble of connecting to its radio no matter what I try. I do see the AP using nmcli dev wifi but never able to connect of get any errors for me try and figure out the problem.

I searched the forum and in one place someone was asked to provide output of firmware and I am providing it too. I can also look more, if you'd kindly give me some pointers..

 OpenWrt 21.02.3, r16554-1d4dea6d4f
root@WNDR4700:~# find /lib/firmware -type f
