How do I force a tablet to stick to 2.4 ghz?

Once upon a time I could set an android device to only use one frequency. This option is no longer present and the device switches between whichever frequency it thinks is best. For most applications this is not an issue. But, if I’m playing Clash of clans the switchover bumps me out of the game – generally when I’m midway through deploying troops, with the result that I lose the battle and waste my troops.
This is extremely annoying, to the extent that, on my own router I’ve given the bands different names so that none of the devices in the house can use 5ghz, even the ones I don’t play games on.
However when staying at other people’s homes I don’t have this option. Is there any way to force a device not to switch frequency mid-session?
