I would like to run my AExt with the 5 GHz wireless network only, is this possible?

No, this is not possible.


The AirPort Extreme will always produce both a 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band. It is not possible to turn one off and leave the other on.


It is possible though, to assign a separate wireless network name to the 5 GHz band....if that is of any interest.

Good catch. I assumed that andrepeternell had a newer simultaneous dual band AirPort based on his question.....but assuming anything is dangerous.

My iPhone 5 connects automatically to the slower wifi network, and I have to manually select the faster one.


I have no use for the slower one.


Many other wifi routers allow you to configure this as needed.


But thanks anyway
