    Does anyone know if Lion favors 5ghz over 2.4ghz? After upgrading to Lion, I noticed that my MacBook is holding on the the 5ghz frequency in places that it used to switch back to the stronger 2.4 ghz signal. Its not creating a noticeable problem, so I wouldn't say its a bug. Does anyone know how the OS chooses a frequency when the network names (5ghz and 2.4ghz) are the same? My router is a 4th gen AEBS.

    Update: My Macbook hasn't moved but it finally did switch over to the slightly stronger 2.4g frequency. Not sure when it happened, but in general it takes longer for it to do this.
