wn3500rp doesn't connect to N900 5GHZ

My wireless router is the NetGear N900 with both 2.4 and 5GHZ transmission. The wn3500rp instructions are to press the 3500 wps button and then press the wps button on wireless router to connect. That worked to get connected to the 2.4GHZ. However I am supposed to again press the 3500 wps button followed by the N900 wps button to connect to 5GHZ but the 3500 is only showing a connection to the 2.4 GHZ. how do I get connection to both 2.4 and 5 GHZ?

Hi, For you to connect to both band of the router follow the steps below: 1. Connect to the 2.4 network of your router using WPS. 2. Once it is already connected, disable the 2.4 network of the router. 3. Connect to th 5GHz network of the router using WPS. 4. Once connected to the 5Ghz network, you may now enable the 2.4 band on the router 5. Connect again to the router using the WPS button and you can now see under Connection status that the router is connected to both band. Thanks.
