RAX50 5G setup greyed out

I have an RAX50 running FW 1.0.11.112.  5G wireless is no longer working, when I go to wireless setup it shows the Enable SSID Broadcast box checked but it's greyed out, like something else is overriding it.  Also, the SSID is no longer shown correctly.  Had the router for about 1 year, never had any problems with 5G until now.  (guest 5G still works fine).  Any help would be appreciated.

Well, I think I found the issue, I selected Enable Smart Connect and it must have greyed out the 5G setup area.  I unselected it and my 5G setup is active now.

Is smart connect enabled on the router? Try disabling smart connect...

Glad you got it working. Please mark your thread as solved so others will know. Be sure to save off a back up configuration to file for safe keeping. Saves time if a reset is needed.
