Trouble connecting to 2.4ghz on Netgear N600

So I have recently purchased a google chromecast, connecting it to my wifi router has been a bit of a problem. From what I understand, the chromecast is not compatible with the 5.0ghz modem.

How do I make the modem just use the 2.4ghz output so it can connect to my chromecast?

Dual router has BOTH SSID broadcast as default

You choose 2.4Ghz side and connect. default 5Ghz has xxxx-5G similar when you can SSID so you will not which band

So, what will I have to do in order for it to read? When i go onto the chromecast support, it talks about disabling access points.

So, from what I understand on the chromecast support, I need to check to see if one of my access points is restricted. What else can I do to make sure they connect?

Router does not restrict in default settings

You may need to adjust wireless mode in the router GUI. There is no one setting that will work you have to adjust (trial and error)
