This is not really a WiFi tip is it?

It is and it isn't. It's about decongesting your WiFi where possible. When it comes to WiFi I recall that actual inner workings being that each device takes a turn to send (polling and queues.) So the less devices you have on one of the two frequencies the better.

If you really insist on keeping a console on WiFi (horrific idea) then only have the consoles on the 5GHz and leave random devices connecting to the 2.4GHz only.
