How to enable separate SSIDs for 5GHz and 2.4GHz

There are certain network setups where you may need to setup separate SSIDs for the 5GHz and 2.4GHz so all your devices can connect. This can be done by connecting to the Web GUI.

Connect to your Nokia WiFi network with a web browser using either http://www.webgui.nokiawifi.com   or  http://192.168.18.1/

Navigate to the Network section and select either wireless (2.4 GHz) or Wireless (5 GHz). Select the one that corresponds to the band that you would like the new SSID to be on. In the image below 2.4 GHz is selected.
