    One thing is to make sure you don't have the same Network name (SSID) for the 2.4GHz and the 5GHz.

    If you do have the same name it confuses the iPad and it might be switching back and forth between the 2.

    I use the 5 GHz router set for wireless N only for the iPad. Then in iPad wi-fi setup I use the SSID for the 5GHz router.
    Money grows on the tree of persistence.
