Let's make sure you can separate your 2 Wi-Fi bands, @tdgraham8


Normally the 2 Wi-Fi bands will be combined due to a feature called Band Steering. This will automatically connect your device to the optimal band for your location. If you'd like to have them show up as 2 separate names for 2.4ghz and 5ghz, you'll need to disable this feature. We recommend checking out @tonydi's steps for disabling band steering.
