Security on 5GHz network

I got a ZoneFlex 7982 from my work and I'm kind of new at this. I connected the 7982 to my router and configured two SSID (2.4 & 5GHz), on the 2.4GHz network I didn't set any encryption method and yet that SSID it's using my router's WAP2 password but if I set the 5GHz with no encryption it doesn't do the same. What I can I do so the AP recognizes both networks as one.

Ps. If I search for networks the 2.4GHz it's showing router and AP as one but 5GHz are two different networks.

Hi Victor,

    I believe your client is seeing the 7982 WLANs, *and* the same SSID from your Wi-Fi router.
A WPA2 passphrase is recommended as the least security (to keep neighbors off your WiFi).
I suggest to set the same WPA2 passphrase on your 7982 WLANs as is on your Wi-Fi router.
