Disable 802.11ax per SSID

So far I managed to disable 802.11ax under radio profiles only if Band Selection is set to "Per AP".

Per SSID band selection ignores "Disable 802.11ax checkmark"

 

Is this expected behavior?

I'm thinking no.  The beacon packet advertises the capabilities (aka WiFi6) and the SSIDs offered.  I don't think the capabilities are specified per SSID in that beacon.

Not 100% sure.

Purely out of curiosity, why would you like to disable AX?

1. Standard is recent and still in early implementation.

2. Outdated drivers on devices that are not managed by organization. Guests or visitors.

2. Only a few 802.11ax clients managed by organization.

As far as I know, RF Profiles can only be assigned to APs, so I guess this doesn't work.

That seems to be the case.
