And the second one, the 5ghz connection, doesn't work as well as the other.

Go into network prefs and use 'Forget This Network' on your device and see if that works to bump you onto the expected network. Alternatively, you could also try reordering the networks in the same prefs. If that's not the problem, it could be congestion on whatever channel your router is broadcasting on the 2.4gHz band - so you might try changing to channels 6 or 11 (of course, everyone does that, so sometimes all that does is shift the congestion to those channels) unless you're already on one of those.

System Prefs>Network>WiFi>Advanced, drag your preferred network to the top of the list. You can also clean out unused wireless connections.
