How to split WiFi signal to separate 2.4 and 5ghz lines?

As the title says how do you do it now because as far as I can see it is done automatically and I’m unable to split them.

FWIW, if you are using the Xfi pods, you can't.

You can do this in the xFi app.
Connect > See Network > pencil icon > select box to use different names.
I had to actually rename the separate channels for it to work, but then it should kick you off and require you to log in again with the new name/password.
