The DWL-2100AP allows you to select whether or not either wireless band can pass information, via the Internal Station Connection option. If this feature is not enabled, that particular wireless band will not be able to pass any information through the Access Point.

However, wireless clients will still be able to transmit across Ethernet for browsing, etc.
