Exploring using different live usb distributions:

Debian doesn't work
MX Linux doesn't work
Fedora doesn't work

Bodhi Linux (basically Ubuntu I think) works
Manjaro works

I'll leave this post here for a while in case anyone can give me some idea of how to find out what's going right/wrong, otherwise in a week or so I'll switch distribution.

Thank you.

That's fascinating. I wonder if Debian Sid would work. What I'm thinking is that there is some minor package that needs updating. Firmware? Non-free firmware?

In your situation you have to do what you have to do. I am curious, though, as to what the problem is. If you ever figure it out let us know.

Right. I've bailed and installed Manjaro. I have a life to lead after all. Thanks for all your help.

I think that was the right move for you, having a life and all, I mean geez, congratulations?

For anyone else with a similar issue, comparing the wpa_supplicant output using the exact same setup on each might offer a clue.
