I have dual band Wi-Fi network at my home with different SSIDs. I want to keep my Mac on 5GHz network for bandwidth, whereas keeping my iPhone on 2.4GHz for more coverage.

No matter how many times I rearrange the order of my Wi-Fi Networks preferences, my Mac always tend to connect to same SSID as my iPhone. I tried following things without success:

  1. If I delete a Network from Mac, it gets deleted from iPhone.
  2. If I add the network back to iPhone, it gets added to Mac.
  3. If I add a Network to Mac, it gets added to iPhone.

Is there a way to allow difference Apple devices registered to the same Apple-Id, to connect to different Wi-Fi networks at same location?
