Can 2.4 GHz Radio be Disabled (AC86U)?

I don't use the 2.4 GHz radio on my AC68U and want to disable it such that the Wi-Fi button only toggles the 5 GHz radio on/off.

Is there an NVRAM command that would accomplish this?

Thanks in advance!

Look at Professional tab under Wireless in GUI.

From the GUI:

Advanced Settings>>Wireless>>Professional>>Enable Radio [Yes/No]

Thanks! I 'm aware of the setting on the Professional tab to turn off the radio. I had the 2.4 GHz radio off. When I use the Wi-Fi toggle button on the AC86U, the first push turns it back on. A second push turns both radios off. A third push turns both radios on.

I am trying to have the Wi-Fi button only toggle the 5 GHz radio and leave the 2.4 GHz radio off.

When this question came up before the answer was that there is no way of separating the different bands from the button press.
