Orbi RBS353 and WiFi 6

I have the Orbi RBS353 setup, which I understand, is a WiFi 6 mesh. I cannot see any reference to WiFi 6 in the WiFi setup section of the router. How do I enable this please?

 

WiFi Analyser does not pick up WiFi 6 either.

Wifi 6 isn't 6ghz. wifi 6E is. 

Wifi 6 just incluced 2.4ghz/5ghz. 

when you go to the 6E you get the 6ghz. 

 

The only mesh from orbi right now with 6ghz is the RBKE963

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80

What do you expecd to see?
Wifi 6 is wireless AX and will show up as increased "up to ****mbps" in the settings. You won't see a "wifi 6" option in the router or your devices.

The Wifi Analyser app on my Phone shows 2.4, 5Ghz Channel graphs but the 6Ghz does not show anything.
