FS#3187 - LinkSys 1900ACS - WLAN 5GHz - 802.11AC with 802.11N at the same time

I was upgraded to my LinkSys WRT-1900ACS from LEDE 17.01.6 to OpenWRT 19.07.3.

With LEDE 17.01.6 I can set up 5GHz WLAN to use N and AC at the same time with two different SSID and with this setup some old devices can connect to this 5GHz WLAN with 802.11n correctly while my notebook can connect to 802.11AC on 5GHz network too (I used two different SSID setup both setting used 5GHz network).

After I upgraded to OpenWrt I found there is no option to set up both 802.11N and 802.11AC with 5GHz at the same time and my old WiFi devices need to use 2.4GHz network only.

With the OpenWrt 19.07.3 the ‘require_mode’ option can set globally so need to decide to use AC or N only for all 5GHz SSID.

Is there any way to set 5GHz with both N and AC at the same time or there is no option by technical reason?
