Do you mean having separate SSIDs on the Orbi? If so, NG doesn't support the separation of SSIDs on Orbi. The 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz are operated under 1 SSID. Orbi and the devices automatically get the devices connected to either frequency based on there support, signal and noise conditions. 

 

IF your having problems connecting devices to the Orbi you can temporarily disable the 5Ghz SSID broadcast while you get your 2.4Ghz devices connected to the RBR. Then re-enable the 5Ghz SSID afterwards.

Adding to the link provided, this image comes from one of the many other discussions of the same issue:

It shows you where to look for the SSID settings on your Orbi device.

Thank you for your reply. Those settings do not broadcast as separate network SSIDs.

There not meant to. Just disables the SSID broadcast is all. 

 

Are you having problems with your Orbi? More details would be needed. What are you trying to accomplish.

No. Nor have you answered the question about why you want to do this.

 

Many people turn up here with the same question. It turns out that they rfeally do not need to have separate SSIDs. (See above.) That is why you got the above answers.
