Unable to change SSID Name for 5Ghz

I tried to change SSID Name from default TMOBILE-XXXX to my old one on my T-Mobile gateway. It worked for 2.4GHz network. But it didn’t work for 5GHz network.

The SSID name is changed to new name for 5GHz network in web under Network/Wi-Fi Networks/5GHz section. But from my computer or phone WIFI, the original SSID name TMOBILE-XXXX still shows up and can be connected. Tried to reboot gateway and it did not help either.

Any idea how to fix this annoying issue?

Did you change them all there is like 12 bands.


After your reply, I re-check all SSID from SSID5 to SSID12. It turns out that both SSID5 & SSID9 are turned on and the latter one has TMOBILE-XXXX. After resetting the name, my issue are resolved.

Thanks for you help.
