Nighthawk x6 Unable to find settings for the 2nd 5GHz channel.

I recently purched the R8000 Nighthawk X6 AC3200 router. I've got it all setup and working great, I'm really pleased with the product so far. The only problem I'm having is that I can't find where to change the setting for the 2nd 5GHz WiFi channel. I'm able to change the SSID for the 2.4GHz channel and the 1 5GHz channel, but I can't find the setting for the 2nd 5GHz channel. When I check the differen't WiFi signals on my phone it shows all 3 signals, with the 2GHz signal renamed (as I changed it) and the 5GHz signal renamed (as I changed it). It's still set as it's original factory name and password, I'm even able to connect to it and everything. If anyone could help me out it would be very appreciated, also I think I setup the router and put it in "Easy" mode, so I can't change the QoS or play with any of the other cool little features.

Hi Lemmywinkzz,

 

Are you using the Genie App to change the settings of the router? If yes, try to change the settings using the Web Genie. Access routerlogin.com.
