Good to know, thank you. Will keep this in mind the next time I'm
troubleshooting WPA-levels.

I'm using a GL-AXT1800 (Slate AX) router from GL.iNet.

I unfortunately do not have access to any other routers I can modify
settings on at the moment (or any other APs to connect to, to test on,
really...) I may have some routers to test it on next week, but I'm
unsure whether they allow me to modify the 802.11w settings as they're
mostly proprietary and don't run something like OpenWRT.

Do you know if it'll be possible to add a flag to enable/disable 802.11w
on ath10k's side? Even if it turns out to be an interoperability issue,
it will most likely be useful to have the ability to switch it off for
APs that don't play nice. Especially for public APs and proprietary
APs where the end-user can't realistically turn off 802.11w for the
entire network.
