Been doing some more reading found these :

Enable Band Steer on a Wireless Access Point



Band steering is a feature that enables your dual-band devices to detect higher radio frequency of 5 GHz band and allows the device to automatically transmit on that band. Because the 2.4 GHz band is an early technology developed for Wi-Fi, it is often congested and experiences interference from different devices such as Bluetooth, and even microwave ovens. This feature allows your dual-band access point to steer and direct devices to a more optimal radio frequency, thus, improving network performance.


Important: If your Virtual Access Point (VAP) is configured with time-sensitive voice or video traffic, it is not encouraged to enable band steer.


This document provides the steps to enable and disable band steering on a wireless access point.

It would be great if Verizon communicated this or their support people knew that access point steering is coming in the future as a lot of people have bought the extenders expecting this functionality and it is not there.

I was able to enable this on my FIOS G1100 by using the MyFIOS app and going to the internet options. Very strange that you can't do it through the router admin firmware.
