Band steering is on by default, and that combines the 2.4ghz and the 5ghz band together, im guessing whenever you go 10m from the router, it switches to 2.4ghz automatically. You have to access the modem config (192.168.0.1), go into Wireless -> 5ghz and turn off band steering, and then place the channel width to 80mhz, also set the channel thats the least crowded around you. Then do the same for 2.4ghz, use 40mhz channel width and change the channel to something other than 1, 6, or 11. Make sure both bands have different names so you can differentiate 2.4ghz from 5ghz. Do the test again, while being connected to the 5ghz band.

Each frequence has its own ssid. Just connect to 5GHz ssid and use it.
