Should I use the same SSID for 2.4GHz and 5GHz in Multy U (WSR30)?

It is recommanded to use the same SSID for 2.4GHz and 5GHz becasue of the band steering feature. Multy U (WSR30) has to be set up with the same SSID for 2.4GHz band and 5GHz band for guiding your connected devices to connect to the band with the best performance.

Although Multy U (WSR30) allows users to set different WiFi SSIDs for 2.4GHz and 5GHz, there will be two separated WiFi networks (one for the 2.4GHz band and the other for the 5GHz band). Users have to connect to different bands manually with different SSIDs and the band steering feature will be disabled.
