WNDR4500: switching on/off 2.4GHz/5.0GHz seperately

I cannot find an option to switch only just one wireless band on and off.
Switching of wireless always seems to be 2.4GHZ+5.0GHz are both switched on or off.

Is there an option to switch just one band (2.4GHz OR 5.0GHz) or , keeping the option of switching or for both bands simultaneously
(just as it is at this moment) ?

You log into the router and it's under basic or advanced, I can't remember. You can just enable or disable each radio.

Go to the netgear support site, type in the WNDR4500 model and you can pull up the guide.

In the user manual chapter 9 page 80 Advanced settings, refers to Advance Wireless settings on page 81.

There is just an option to set wireless or .
An option to swith one transceiver or is missing ?

Page 72.

Just turn off the Radio on either the 2.4 or 5...

Very simple.

It's under Advanced\Advanced Setup\Wireless


You should see the following under Wireless Advanced Settings (2.4)
Uncheck Enable wireless radio to turn off. Check to turn on

Scroll down and do the same thing under 5 if you wish.

Then select Apply.

I downloaded the Netgear WNDR4500 manual for 2nd time, now from the netgear.com site. The info was there.

In another version of the manual, downloaded from another site, this info was not mentioned.
