Tablet 2 - bluetooth drops when connecting to 5GHz wifi

I have just updated my TPT2 to Windows 8.1, with BIOS 2.10.  I'm having a new problem where when I connect to any 5 GHz wifi networks, the bluetooth immediately drops out.  For example, my TPT2 keyboard stops working.  I have to disconnect from the wifi using the touch screen and reboot the machine. 

 

I want to turn off 5GHz in the wifi driver so that I won't connect to any 5GHz accidentally and kick out my bluetooth - but that doesn't seem to be an option in this driver.  I can see this being a problem if a particular wifi network uses the same SSID name for both its 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz networks.

 

This is especially odd to me because Bluetooth uses 2.4 GHz not 5, and connecting to 2.4 GHz wifi causes no problems.

 

I am on wifi driver gew413ww

bluetooth driver gewb12ww

 

I do have the 8.1 platform drivers, gehp03ww, installed as well.
