    Definitely 5GHz, way less interference, more stability, and a faster connection, but you give up some range compared to 2.4GHz. I use D-Link's DSL-2890AL modem/router.

    I've noticed that 5GHz is much better than 2.4GHz.... As the person above me said, the 2.4GHz can also penetrate walls too.

    nope, if you modem come with dual-band version it let you setup both 2.4GHZ and 5GHZ wifi network.

    I just actually got the new router with dual-band. But honestly it's been really good inside my house. I've connected every single device that can read the 5GHz signal and it's been fantastically strong.

    You can choose to either have one connection that automatically connects you to an appropriate bandwidth or you can separate them. For example in my house, I have a 2.4GHz connection and a 5GHz connection. Both separate network bandwidths but it lets you choose which one you wanna connect to and keeps you connected there.

    About 10-15 metres, through two walls I can still get a stable connection over 5GHz. Not stable enough for something like Nvidia Gamestream, but enough for normal online gaming and streaming video.

    thats odd. I have my gateway placed upstairs and my devices are all downstairs. There's one wall between the gateway and downstairs. Do you have a razer blade stealth?

    Not all modem supports 5ghz. So thats why it is dependent of your modem. But now with the advance in technology, recent modem should support 5ghz and most recent wireless card should be able to detect it

    could be your driver for modem or wireless card not up to date or there is someone ddosing you

    I know 5Ghz is far faster but because of distance I prefer 2.4Ghz.

    Check what card you have right now and see is it up to date. And there is a chance your wireless card does not have 802.11ac

    Who knows, i could be the one who is ddosing.... uh not me definitely not me

    Does the distance affects the speed of 2.4 and 5ghz differently? Cause I never learnt that distance affects 5ghz more than 2.4ghz

    There needs to be more information before we can answer this question. The first thing we need to do is to state that a modem is what connects the ISPs internet service to you. Then you have a WiFi router after that to make the wireless. There is a big difference between 802.11n and 802.11ac in both the 2.5GHz and 5.0GHz. If your WiFi router is old (or worst the one the cable company over charges you for), the you will not be getting the speeds to you need. The next big question is about your location. The 2.5GHz will travel around 4x the distance of 5.0GHz, but will be slower. It will also be slower because more devices are using that band. If you see a lot of WiFi access points, then yes the 2.5GHz band will be saturated.

    Which WiFi router are you using?
    Does it support 802.11ac?
    How many WiFi access points to you see?
