How do I switch from 2.4ghz to 5ghz frequency on my smart hub router

How do I switch the frequency on my smart hub router so my devices run on the 5Ghz and not the 2.4Ghz frequency. I am using a wired connection with TP-Link powerlink modules.

@KenWeb   You need to login to the router as admin and separate them so they password for each frequency.  You just select the frequency you want to use

@KenWeb : To separate the frequencies, look on the Advanced Settings / Wireless page of the SH where there is a button at the top to Separate the Bands. Turn it ON. Then the 5GHz SSID will appear starting with "5GHz-" & the 2.4 GHz SSID not starting with "5GHz-". Then you will be able to choose which SSID your devices connects to.
