Access your gateway (, navigate to the wifi section, possibly click Advanced Option if your gateway shows that (or similar wording) and that gives you access to the 2.4 and 5 GHz settings.  If you  give the 2.4 and 5 bands different ssid (network name) and passwords you will disable the band steering (where the use of 2.4 and 5 are optimized), and then you can access the respective band by it's associated ssid.

You'd have to go into your gateway settings to change that info.
