Peplink Max Transit Duo will not connect to iPhone hotspot

My router used to connect to my iPhone 8 or iPhone SE when the hotspot was turned on. Now the pep wave sees the iPhones wifi but won’t connect, it just keeps scanning. Did something change? maybe in last update? Any help would be appreciated. I have restarted the iPhones and the router and deleted the wan profile and tried to connect as new profile but nothing seems to help.
