EOS R6 WiFi failure (2nd camera)

My new R6 will not detect or find my home WiFi (or any other wifi) network. It shows "Search fo access points" and "Searching..." and then nothing.


It *will* allow the phone to connect to it, if I use the "connect to smartphone" method (this is where the camera starts it's own wifi nertwork). But I cannot connet to my wifi to, e.g., transfer via ftp, as I did with my 5D4. I have tried with both 5GHz and 2.4GHz wifi networks.


This is the second camera with this symptom (the first one wouldn't even allow the local connection). Canon support told me to send the first one back. 


I have updated the firmware to 1.1.1. No difference.


Any ideas? Surely I can't be the only one. My phone can see multiple wifi networks.
