Router interference

My laptop is getting a lot of interference with my 2.4ghz router so I'm thinking about switching to a 5ghz router. My question is, can Dual Band routers be switched to run on 5ghz only? All the 5ghz routers I've seen say they simutaneously switch between 2.4 and 5, but I want to run it solely on 5ghz.

BTW, I've already tying switching the router between channels 1, 6, and 11 but still have connection issues.

You should be able to, at least with a decent one. I have an ancient linksys router and it's got a 5ghz only option in the settings. If you download the manual on the router you plan on buying, you'll be able to know for sure.

Do you by chance have any cordless land line phones in your home? If so, what ghz are they? Might be the problem and then again might not be.

Thank's ta2maki.

The interference is coming from a wireless surveillance system.
