Wifi connection error (exclamation mark)

I am having trouble with one of my wifi AP's at home. Whenever I connect to it, I do not get the "connected" popup message, although 'Settings/System/WLAN/' indicates that I really am connected to the AP. My phone also got an IP, and the router lists my jolla with this particular IP. However, the wifi status icon on the homescreen is greyed out with an exclamation mark inside. I can connect from my phone to any device within my local network, but connections to the 'outside' world are not working, neither by IP address nor domain names. I tried removing and readding the config for my AP from connman several times, but it still doesn't work. My second AP works without any problems, though. Also, no other device shows connection problems (even my girlfrends jolla connects fine to the AP where my phone refuses to work properly).

What can I do to trace the problem? I found an 'older' post dealing with connection problems where the package 'connman-tracing' was mentioned to get debugging logs. I installed it and can provide the journal logs.
