comment How do you force a 5 GHz wifi connection?
Bluetooth performance is empirically degraded (e.g. jumpy mouse, audio loss, observed irregularities in Bluetooth data inspector) when the laptop is connected to a 2.4 GHz wifi network, no matter which network. Packet loss and latency also increases on 2.4 GHz wifi when connected to Bluetooth devices.

comment How do you force a 5 GHz wifi connection?
No. A router may already be configured to only provide 802.11n (or 802.11ac), and it may provide it on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands simultaneously. An 802.11 protocol is not synonymous with a frequency band.

I tried to use iStumbler (both v99 and v100), but double clicking the network name only brings up a signal strength graph. I saw no way to join a selected network.

comment Is there a way to blacklist USB devices without unplugging?
I'm trying to use an external Bluetooth dongle rather than the internal one, due to wifi-coexistance issues that are causing major interference problems.

comment Can't boot Windows 7 USB Install on iMac 8,5
Citation needed. Macs can boot off USB, but maybe not Windows due to the way EFI is implemented.
