Wifi will not connect on first try

Hello all, I am presently using a g1100 and repeater. I tried to use two g1100 to not use my repeater and save money. Upon having both g1100 in use they conflicted so I ended up just connecting the repeater back. Problem is now whenever I try to connect to my wifi networks it never connects on the first try. I'll  try and connect and phone will say connected but no internet, then I go to my 5g network and it will do the same. Going back to my regular network and it THEN connects no issue. I must click back and forth usually 3 times between regular and 5g network to connect. Devices like Alexa always have issue. I've factory reset the router and nothing changes, any help would be greatly appreciated. Just want to be able to click on my wifi and connect like before.

No Internet connection is indicative of IP address conflict or no IP address assigned at all. Can you reset the NICs of your client devices as well?

Hello, ty for the response. I have reset the nic on my cell phone but it didn't help. Wifi will never connect on any device first try. It eventually does after approx. 3 times back and forth between wifi networks. Head scratcher
