Does anybody know if there is a way to have separate passwords for 2.4 and 5ghz? Or if not is it possible to limit a devices access to one or the other?

They have different SSID's so by nature you can limit devices to a single band.


They however do not offer band steering (which is an essential feature for dual band AP's IMHO) but then again no home routers do no matter the price.

Change the SSID's so they are both different. Then you select the network on your phone to connect to. AFAIK you cant have an individual password for each SSID.
