My bad it should have been with sudo, so try these again.
Code:
sudo nmcli connection reload
sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager

Can you just reboot your system and then share the output of the following again?
Code:
ip a
ip route

It's still not showing what I'm expecting, can you just use the graphical network manager GUI, remove the connection and then add the wireless connection again?

So sorry I left you hanging on that message… kids lol.
I did remove the connection and added it again, no luck

I truly appreciate the help, I think I will contact the seller on Monday and see if they can help me troubleshoot. I will try and remember to come back and update if I get it sorted out

I think there is something different in your network setup that I am not aware of or something else because the standard way of connecting to a wireless network should result your system to get an ip adress and a gateway. With your system it's getting an ip but not a gateway, I just thought of that we could try adding adding a network configuration manually but than I would have to know the network information of your network. My guess it would be something like this.
Code:
Network: 10.10.10.1
Gateway: 10.0.0.1
Subnetmask: 255.0.0.0(aka /8)
We can still try it, I will post later today what commands to run to manually configure an ip adress for you.

Remove the current connection and then create a new connection from the terminal.
sudo nmcli connection add con-name daemon ifname wl2ps0 ipv4.method manual connection.autoconnect yes connection.type 802-11-wireless.mode infrastructure 802-11-wireless-security.key-mgmt wpa-psk 802-11-wireless 802-11-wireless-security.psk "YourNetworkPassword" 802-11-wireless-security.auth-alg open 802-11-wireless-security.psk ipv4.method manual ipv4.addresses 10.10.10.1/8 ipv4.gateway 10.0.0.1 ipv4.dns 10.10.10.1
sudo nmcli connection reload
Then reboot and if you can then share the output of the following again.
Code:
ip a
ip route
If that doesn't work we create try changing the security method and password type but it's kind of a long shot as long as we don't know what security method your wireless network is using.
