Naming 2.4 and 5.0 networks x6s r8000p

Just bought a X6S R8000P router. I currently am using a low-end router that allowed me to name the 2.4 network and password and separately name the 5.0 network with a different name and password. I have about 25 devices now set with the 2.4 name and password. Can I do the same with this unit so I don't have to reconnect all my devices again? If so how do I do this. Thank you and obviously you are dealing with a novice. 76 years old and not a computer guru.

Yes you can. Go to this link and put in your model number. Will go to place where you can download the user manual which will answer your questions.

Thank you for your fast response.  I did look at the manual and it is very confusing.  At least to me.  I think that page 55 is where I should do this but just not sure.  Looking for some gracious person to show me step by step or least tell me what page would show me how.

 

Stay safe through all this mess and appreciate the comeback.
