Here is what we did to solve this problem:
Set the network manager to use the spcific BSSID for the AP: Click on
the network manager icon and 'Edit Connection|YOUR CONNECTION/|Wi-Fi
tab click on BSSID: dropdown and you should see '74:44:01:93:CA:DE'
click on that so that it remains in the BSSID window|click 'Save' and
exit the NM connection editor.
$ sudo killall NetworkManager
That will kill and re-establish the network manager
$ iw reg get
I changed the country code to 00 as it was on US and I am not in the US.
