HI! I'm running a network with 4 AP370. There is significant interference on 2,4GHz (especially daytime) and almost nothing on 5MHz. One evening when there was very low wifi traffic I got tremendous speed on 5GHz ac. Next day I still low interference on 5GHz but I seem to be stuck at 2,4 and bad speeds. I have read a bit about bandsteering. Is this recommended and possible from 2,4g/n to 5ac? Any other tips? Thanks in advance. J

I would consider creating 2 x SSIDs - one on the 5Ghz , the other on 2.4 GHz band. 2.4Ghz devices will only see the "slow" band and connect using that one.  For a 5Ghz device - you get the choice - rather than letting the AP or your device decide.
