Manually choose wifi between 2.4 and 5GHz


Is it possible to have the connect box provide both 2.4GHz and 5GHz at the same time and leaving it up to the client to choose? I have a tv-box and for some reason it puts it on 2.4GHz which is too slow for streaming. On my previous modem (non-upc) I would have two ssids and could select whichever I wanted.

I have the same.problem with my Surface Pro 2 btw, it gets 2.4GHz which would be fine but it interferes with bluetooth. So when there is network activity my by mouse becomes super laggy, which is why I force the surface to use 5GHz normally.

Re: Manually choose wifi between 2.4 and 5GHz

Something seems to have changed as now under Advanced Settings > Wireless > Security I can select a name separately for 2.4 and 5GHz. I am quite sure it wasn't there yesterday. So whoever did it, thank you!
