How to force ARRIS TG1682G Modem to use 2.4GHz instead of 5GHz

I have the new ARRIS TG1682G modem and I need to have it stay on 2.4 GHz for my computer to communicate wirelessly with my HP 8600 Plus Printer (it only uses 2.4 GHz). I can connect the printer on 2.4 GHz to the modem, but cannot make the computer connect at 2.4 GHz ... as the modem automatically switches it to 5 GHz as best band to use. How can I force the modem to let me connect my computer at 2.4 GHz so I can print wireless? Thanks.

Do your 2.4 and your 5.0 networks have different names ? If not, try changing the 2.4 network name to something else and have the printer associate with that new 2.4 name (SSID).
