Re: Is it better to use 2.4 ghz or 5 ghz connection

You probably won't notice a difference either way.  I'd choose the excellent connection and then if there was a problem switch to the other.  A 2.4GHz channel has plenty of capacity for streaming anything from the Internet.  It's only when people try to stream their own raw Blu-ray rips that a 2.4GHz connection could be too slow.
