Alien Band Steering forcing 2.4ghz-only devices to 5ghz band

Just set up the Alien router 2 days ago and since then most things have been great except my Lifx smart bulbs and Sonos speakers keep on dropping off the network. Both Lifx bulbs and Sonos speakers only support 2.4ghz. Rebooting the Alien would solve the problem for an hour or two, but they'd eventually disappear again. Disabling band steering seems to have done the trick, but I would really like it if the steering worked correctly, since on paper it sounds like a valuable feature.

@joel-m Hello, for devices that support only 2.4Ghz I would recommend using an additional SSID setup specifically for those devices. Here is an article if you need help setting this feature up https://help.amplifi.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011636294-Troubleshooting-Connection-Issues-for-Wireless-Printers-Security-Cameras-and-Other-Devices
