Disable 5Ghz WiFi Radio

I'd like the ability to disable the 5 Ghz radio temporarily, from the app.  Some of my smart home devices only work on 2.4 Ghz and sometimes one of them will "get confused" by the 5Ghz network and stop responding on WiFi. With my old router, if I disabled the 5Ghz network and rebooted the smart home device, it would find the 2.4 Ghz network, log on and stay on 2.4.  Then, when I re-enabled 5Ghz, the device would continue to function fine.

I don't see a way to do this currently. I just installed the Eero a couple of weeks ago. One of my smart home devices seems to be having this problem and I'm struggling trying to figure out how to force it to 2.4.

Thank you.

  • Darn, this didn't turn up in my search before I request the ability to Pause 5g temporarily. After which I actually started paging through all the requests and found this. Anyway, I upvoted this too, and hope that others will upvote mine as well.
