CGM4141 modem/router frequencies

I have the subject modem/router broadcasting to two different computers (nearly identical) located eight feet apart. However, one is receiving at ~160 MB and the other at ~30 MB.  The only difference I can find is one is receiving the 5 GHz signal and the other 2.4 GHz signal.  Could that be the problem?  If so, can I get them both on the 5 GHz signal?  If so, how do I do that?

    How many other devices on 2.4 GHz...appliances, door locks, doorbells, thermostats, light bulbs, etc?

    Also, if you connect both devices on 5 GHz and because it's a shared connection, you can half the 160 to 80 per device.
