One thing I don't understand is that I have read that the 5ghz side should be on a high numbered channel, and when set to auto it sets the 5 at channel 100 And the 2.4 to channel 6. Works so far, but if I need at some point to change the 2.4 channel, it will only allow me to choose a channel for the 5ghz side up to something in the 40's if I remember correctly.
Sorry for the long post.

You could have just removed the 2.4 network in network preferences but the results the same.

Sorry but I don't realy understand what you're getting at in the last part of your post. If you need to change the 2.4 channel - just change it. It won't have any impact on the 5ghz network.
