I am having trouble disabling 2.4 radio on my AC86U with Merlin 384.19. When I disable it in Professional tab (Wireless -> Professional -> Enable Radio -> No -> Apply) the router itself shows, that the 2.4 GHz radio is disabled, however, all the clients show that 2.4 GHz signal is still up and can even connect to it...

Both radios work without problems, I just do not need 2.4 GHz radio at the moment.

Any ideas?

Have you rebooted , or power cycled the router since switching off the 2.4Ghz?
