I sometimes have a similar situation in my house.  And I live in a radio
quiet area, so I don't face the usual tradeoff of polluted 2.4ghz.

But it does make it very hard to simply recommend 5 over 2.4ghz; there is
no single "right answer"; the answer is "it depends" for the simple one
router case.

And the right solution is more routers, and using 5ghz once you have them.
