Second 5Ghz Radio disabled on BGW 320-500 & 320-505?!

When i got this unit as replacement for the 210, I was thrilled to see it supported two different networks. Now you folks disabled the second one. Please revert this back to the 3 radio setup I need the three networks because i have one for legacy devices, one for newer and then one setup for my AX/wifi 6 devices. Please revert this immediately.
I am very unhappy when you make uneeded changes. If there is a way to revert this update and prevent future ones, let me know.

Adding another voice. Range extender only uses certain channels, which i can no longer manually select. Please fix.

An overall update to my situation. I can get another 5g network, but its on the same network/radio as my normal one, it just rebroadcast itself as a wpa2/3 network if i set it to be the WPA2/3 setting. So technically im not really getting the second radio. I have tried as another forum stated turning off my airties and rebooting the system but gotten no secondary 5g network.

I installed to my friend the BGW320, even if it is not listed, check with a wifi analyzer and you'll see it is indeed using the two radios

Yes, both 5GHz radios are operating, but there are no options available for them like there were a few weeks ago. On the BGW210 and the BGW320 up until recently you could manually set the channel for both 2.4 and 5GHz bands.

On the BGW320 you can only set the channel for 2.4GHz. It seems like something was changed for the worse in the most recent software update.

It is not using both five g radios. I have determined that. If I disable the first 5g radio, airties lose connection as I have 2.4 hidden.

The stores which aren't grounded can not without difficulty be grounded due to layout of home and location of them. Most of our stores on our home are grounded, only some are not. We best have seven which are not grounded here. I have moved the strength strip supplied via ATT which they plugged into another electricity strip that's plugged right into a grounded outlet of which is properly grounded. We had wiring in maximum of house upgraded to code.
