difference between 2.4GHz and 5GHz

Trying to find out the difference between the 2.4GHz and the 5GHz on the comcast moden/router. And is there a way connect different devices to the different bandwiths?

The difference it 2.6 GHz Just kidding...

 

Log into your gateway device and change the name of one of the networks so you can differentiate between the two. The 2.4 GHz frequency is pretty crowded and does not perform as well as the 5GHz network, so use that 5GHz whenever you can. Some devices will only do 2.4GHz, but most newer devices should be able to connect to either.
