Actually, I think the RAX120 is a Nighthawk product, not an Orbi.

https://www.netgear.com/support/product/RAX120.aspx 

 

I believe the forum for that product may be https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-Routers-with-WiFi-6-AX/bd-p/en-home-routers-nighthawk-wif... 

 

The User Manual for the RAX120 talks about WiFi settings starting on page 75.

https://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/RAX120/RAX120_UM_EN.pdf 

The implication is that 2.4G and 5G channels can have different SSID's.  (It doesn't show a screen shot, and I do not have one to look at.)

I love my Orbi.

Right again. I need to read more carefully.
I love my Orbi.
