devices must accept one or the other widths. If I keep the same name for both networks do the devices (if compatible with both) just choose the least "busy" one?
the whole purpose of buying the dual was so my son can play xbox live upstairs without lag or being dropped from server due to poor signal.

The 2.4ghz band signal is stronger then the 5ghz band...
...so if they are named the same SSID, by default, the clients may always connects to the 2.4ghz, even if they are 5ghz capable?
If an "N" client connects and a "G" client connects to the 2.4ghz band, the 2.4ghz band is limited to the "G" clients speed?
So to get around this I would want all the "N" clients to connect 5ghz if possible?
In most clients, I can select "Preferred" network, so I could set the SSID of the 5ghz as first and the 2.4ghz as second, for optimum performance?
What would this do to roaming capability using a SQL app if I am walking through a large building with mutiple access points? Would it keep disconnecting and reconnecting depending on the signal strength between the 2.4ghz and the 5ghz?

So I can not set the priority as you suggest in the 3rd paragraph. Where as if I have two different SSID names, Test1 for the 2.4ghz and Test2 for the 5ghz, then I do see both of them and can choose my priority in the dual-band device.
And if we consider the 2 ranges are different networks. Using the same SSID name on both ranges, at power on of my dual-band device, if it sees the 2.4ghz first and connects, will it roam or switch to the 5ghz?
I guess there is nothing like actually testing it.
