SSID on Both Bands
An SSID on both bands means that the wireless network name is broadcasted to client devices in both the 2.4ghz and 5ghz band. This causes client devices to cross-band roam, or roam from 2.4ghz to 5ghz. Each band should have different SSID in order to control traffic on the network efficiently.
For each band, 2.4ghz and 5ghz, give each a unique SSID.
