2.4ghz with Pods

I have an EV charger in my garage that only works on 2.4ghz according to the manufacturer.  Everything I read online states that Xfinity has silently done away with the ability to switch or add another SSID to split between 2.4 and 5.  What are my other options?  If I use my own router with 2.4 and 5 capabilities, will this fix the issue?  If I eliminate the pods all together, will I regain the ability to split between 2.4 and 5 again or is this function obsolete?

You can switch modes on your xfinity gateway to split the signals out but then your pods won't work.  They have to use wifi 6 radio mode.  Option is here:  https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/change-wifi-mode-admin-tool-xfinity-xfi

Cheap access point with a 2.4G radio (probably has 5G too) connected to the lan port with an ethernet cable might work for you.  A lot of them are PoE (power over eithernet).  Your gateway can't do that so make sure it comes with a power adapter.  Your own router connected to the gateway can work to get the other radios, but you'll want to make sure it has a "disable wan, disable it's dhcp server, and dhcp forwarding" -- or sometimes called bridge mode if you want everything on the same subnet.

@PoorPilot I show that flatlander3  provided you with some great information on to change the wifi name & password to split the GHZ settings https://comca.st/3GqpP6b, keep in mind by splitting them the awesome xfi pods will not work.
