Orbi AX, is there a way to separate 2.4Ghz with 5Ghz ssid?

The old trick via telnet not work with new model and firmware. I cant even turn off 2.4Ghz band (which is available with Orbi AC models) , so I can use another router to provide legacy 2.4Ghz service.

This is because the wifi signal makes my kid computer frequently switch between 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz, and he cant play game with it..

I tried lower the power of 2.4Ghz to 25%, but it does not help too much..

No. 

 

MIght see if the adapter in the kids PC can be configured any for not using 5Ghz if this is a dual band adapter. Try checking the driver advanced settings for any options, if you see any.
