Hello, can someone please a wifi access point that can broadcast two SSIDs simultaneously i.e. one on 2.4 and one on 5Ghz ?
Most cheaper access points only allow one SSID to be broadcast at once.

Thanks kindly.

What are your requirements? I ask this because recommending a product isn't possible without knowing exactly what these are.

Unifi Pro would be my pick.

You haven't said it had to be an all in one device.

Pretty much every router that supports 5Ghz is dual band 2.4/5Ghz.

APs are a very different story, with plenty of reasons why it's better to have individual devices. Those APs that do support dual band cost a low more than a dual band router because they're a lot higher spec.

As for recommendations, it depends on the requirements as core functionality such as band steering can be very important.
