    Having worked with shortwave radio, this is a sure sign of
    1. weak signals
    2. interference from other devices nearby
    3. reflection from nearby objects
    I've always suffered FM reception problems at home as I live in a hilly area and the signals bounce about badly. Walk across the street and it's all fine, but that doesn't help FM, cell phones & wifi in the house.

    Stick with the 2.4GHz wifi as it's better that the 5GHZ in this case. Consider a range extender or access point to boost the signal to other portions of the house.

    Lastly, you can use an EoP device to position an access point nearby, eg:
    Here's the EoP device I am using
