Unfortunately, there is no option to do this.  The only thing that you can do is reduce the power level of the radios.

You can actually just disable the wireless ssid broadcast for the 5ghz. It doesn't shut down the 5ghz but makes it more like a phone and the weather station will connect to the 2.4ghz. 

Advanced---->Advanced setup------>uncheck the enable ssid braodcast for the 5ghz. 

 

You also need to make sure the phone that you use for setup is on the 2.4ghz during the setup process. You might have to disconnect reconnect to get it to associate with the 2.4ghz.

Ya, something I wish they would implement. Helpful for IoT users. Smiley Wink
