Need help finding a way to toggle WiFi band.

I have a friend with a surface pro 3 that’s not on warranty any more and the wifi adapter has issues. It usually has a red x and says there are no wifi networks available. I googled everything and none of their fixes worked. Eventually, I started tinkering in the advanced controller properties and toggled the band from Auto to 2.4 and it finally started working. I swapped it back to Auto and it’s still working. Unfortunately they use 5 at home and 2.4 at work so I really need Auto. They say it happens a lot and sometimes just leaving it on for a couple of hours will trigger it to work. I was hoping to find a way to script a toggle the band to 2.4 and back to auto. Any ideas or sub suggestion is appreciated.
