Can't enable 5 ghz wifi

I found the forum post about using the wifi on/off button on the Netgear Nighthawk (which is not even REMOTELY obviously a button, by the way), but when I used it to solve my problem of the yellow "Wireless Off" status on, it only enabled the 2.4 Ghz band. the 5 ghz band is still off, and in the Advanced section, it shows "Wireless AP: Off" under the 5 ghz band. How do I turn this back on again? I've tried pushing the two buttons on the router in all three combinations to no avail. The wireless button functions as an on/off for the 2.4 Ghz band only, and the 5 ghz band remains stubbornly disabled.


Thanks for any insight you might have!
