ASUS Smart connect

Hi, I just got the RT-AC88U and while setting up I saw an option for Smart connect for both the 2.4 as well as 5G bands. Any downside to enabling this for both?

The down side is you can not specify which device can stay at which band... and you have no control over speed when you know your device can obtain higher link rate. Smart connect allocates device based on rssi and bounce window..

Thanks. Will keep it off then. My wireless speakers are setup on a single band and will disconnect if my ipad switches band midway
