Appletv 5.3 update forces me onto n band, want to be on g

Advertisement
I have my Apple TV wired to a dual band g/n wireless router.  With the 5.3 update, my Apple TV jumped from the g band onto the n band; however most of my devices (ie my remote control app devices) can only use the g band.  I could not find a way to actually select which band to use on the Apple TV, is there a way?  Is my only recourse to un-wire the Apple TV and go wireless?  When I first got it, I had it wireless but then perpetually got the "Turn on homesharing!" message so I wired it to get around that problem.  Any advice?

Change your router settings.
B, g, and n all use 2.4GHZ. The n flavor can also use 5GHZ based on how the router is configured.
No logical person would elect to use the slower g connection instead of the faster n connection.

I sold my iPhone4, and I need to restore it before shipping it. The buyer has asked that I don't install iOS6. Is this possible? Does the restore process force iOS6 onto the phone? Before I backup/restore it, it has iOS5.1.1 installed.
