Disable 2.4Ghz on a per AP basis

So I know you can switch off 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz on each SSID if you wish but I would like to know if it is planned to be able to switch off 2.4Ghz band on a per AP basis.

Due to the construction of my house (some walls are three bricks thick) I have 4 APs to provide a good coverage for 5Ghz which is working very well with good roaming (although still not as fast as my previous Aruba APs - sorry) but in my previous set up I had only two APs broadcasting the 2.4Ghz signal which worked well as i didn’t have too much co channel interference.

Is this something that is planned on the roadmap?

I am aware I could do this with seperate SSIDs but what if i wanted to have both on the same SSID?

Yep, you can assign color to a Wi-Fi setting. After, assign that color to the AP.

So purple is 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz (depending of the Wi-Fi SSID)
Pink is only 5Ghz for the “Home” network stuff. So this way, only IoT devices, and guests connect to 2.4 Ghz.

You can do it per SSID (colors) or on each AP.

For each AP, you can manage the Network (devices), open the settings for the AP. Under ‘channel’ for the band, you can scroll down and set to ‘disabled’ for that band on that AP.


Both of these options are feasible, dealer’s choice as they say. If it’s a single AP that will always have the 2.4GHz disabled for the purposes of non-overlapping channels, @carrottspc’s 2nd option is probably the way to go.

If it’s temporary or you want that visual indicator on the Devices tab, the color code is a decent option as well.

There can only be one solution to this topic, so @user19 as the OP, you get to choose, but they’re both viable options.


Nice, I was only looking for this option to troubleshoot the Wi-Fi for a number of older devices. I couldn’t work out how to do it on the mobile app.

Also, if you want to do it per AP, you can disable a specific radio. Open up the AP and scroll to the bottom of the channel selection, Disabled is an option. Doesn’t apply in every situation, but does have its applications.
