Have you tested this with as simple configuration as possible? E.g.,
start with just an open network and then add WPA2-Personal, but with
IEEE 802.11n and WMM still disabled? Could also be easier to start with
2.4 GHz band first and only after that is working, move to 5 GHz.
Unfortunately, this type of issue can be difficult to diagnose if no
useful output is available from the client side.
