2.4GHz and 5GHz wifi networks combined after restarting modem

Hello All 

I had the frustrating occurrence of my two seperate networks being combined into 1 network. 

Example network 1 ( Alpha 2.4GHz ) and (Beta 5GHz) were now both just (Alpha 2.4) but using both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. I like having two seperate ones, so I can use one for printers and smart devices etc and one for high speed connections. 

So after searching through the settings and finding no simple solution, I tried adjusting setting on the modem and fixed it. 

After unplugging my modem "Band steering and Roaming:" was than enabled without my input. After turning it off, the 1 network became 2 again. 

Band steering and Roaming: is found in Wifi Settings-Wifi Mesh- Band steering and Roaming:

Hope that helps someone else 🙂
