I had the same issue, even after creating a separate 5G and 2.4 G networks, then remembered I had a TP Link WiFi extender and created 2 more extended networks for both. So 4 total networks, a 5 G and 2.4 G with the t-moble Gateway and a 5 G and 2.4 G with the wifi extender. Worked like a charm on the 2.4 G extended network. The WiFi extender is cheap, so no major investment or hassle.


Curious, what gateway do you have.  May not be relative but I have a T-Mobile hotspot device and was able to create a new APN and have the settings from IPv6 to IPv4v6 to cover both standards.  Should be a way to do it with your gateway.  In my case I had to change it because Roku devices don't support IPv6.
