Can I setup AEBS and my Mac to use only 5Ghz band?

I understand that the 802.11N standard has more performance using the 5Ghz band. I want my MacBookPro to use that band, and other devices such us iPod and iPhone or PC use 2.4Ghz.

  • Yes, definitely. Those settings are made in AirPort Utility by reopening AirPort Utility, selecting "Manual Setup" and changing the "Wireless" panel's "Radio Mode" to:
    "802.11n only (5 GHz) - 802.11n only (2.4 GHz)"
