How to temporarily stop 5 g and use 2.5 g to install devices

I have 3 small devices, 2 inside cameras and a weather station that have stopped working after the att WiFi extender was installed. How can I temporarily turn off 5 g and only have 2.5 to install these devices and then go back to 5 g?  Thanks for some help!

Get into your gateway (192.168.1.254), navigate to its wifi section, and turn the 5GHz band off.  Alternatively just give the 2.4 and 5 different ssid/passwords to disable the band steering and access the desired band by it's respective ssid.
