Disable 2.4 GHz radio in AP mode on firmware2.2.1.210

Trying to disable 2.4 GHz radio on Orbi.  The option to uncheck "Enable Wireless Router Radio" under Advanced Setup -> Wireless Settings -> Advanced Wireless Settings (2.4GHz b/g/n) is not there as per 2017-03 topic.

Running in AP mode.

Model: RBK50| Orbi AC3000 High-Performance Tri-Band WiFi System

Disabling of any radio on the Orbi is not officially support currently on the Orbi. 

There a reason you need to do this? 

 

You can try this if you really need to disable radios:

Theres been mixed results...

I have one AP utilizing the 2.4 GHz radio for legacy gear on a separate SSID.  I want all others to utilize 5 GHz.  Will return product and probably move to Netgear Nighthawk X6S EX8000.  Thanks.
