Turn off 2.4 GHz radio on one access point only

Hi everyone,

 

Title says it all ! I'm trying to figure out if it is possible or not to shut down manually the 2.4GHz radio on a Meraki AP.

I think it might be possible from ap.meraki.com, but is this configuration going to be overwritten by having the AP connected to the dashboard ? Is there a way to do this from the dashboard that I am not aware of ?

 

Thank you all in advance,

I think you may use Band steering which will help you to leave 2.5Ghz while all clients will use 5G Band.
