Need cell phone to connect to 2.4 ghz to set up landroid

The app I need to use to connect my husband's landroid to his phone needs 2.4 ghz but we are connected at 5 ghz.  I have read comments to rename the 5ghz to something else but when trying that I receive an error message that both have to be named the same.  2.4 ghz is only needed for the initial setup.  I'm lost.

Ignore that warning message and complete the change.  It's based on the theory that bandsteering (that's what combining the two bands into one is called) should work in the real world with real devices.  That's often not the case and certainly isn't with the AT&T gateways.

You might get away with changing it back after the setup of the landroid, but sometimes devices will disconnect and have trouble getting reconnected at some point down the road and you'll be forced to do this again.
