The problem with 2.4 is that most handheld wireless devices run on this frequency (such as phones or xbox controllers) and if you have the router near one of these devices when they're on and transmitting data (let's say for example the phone goes off) then your wireless connection get's messed up momentarily and will sometimes need to be 'repaired'.
I have a 2.4 wireless router and while 'repairing' the connection isn't the end of the world, I eventually moved my wireless phones downstairs (the router is upstairs) and bought a regular phone for my room because it became increasingly annoying with every call.
Wireless is great, especially for laptops and other portable devices, you just have to make sure it's secure, and doesn't encounter too much interference.
