Nope. That's impossible. The radio in the Note is designed to associate to only one access point at a time. Whether it be 2.4 or 5.
It would also be useless. Having a phone locked onto to two ssid's would mean splitting the packets to two locations. Overcomplicated uses ordeal.

I am trying to use a new app (XStream) that supports streaming of Windows 7 Media Center files (.wtv). So far this is the first software I found that supports that (Samsung USA support had no idea). I can record 4 HD cable TV channels (FIOS) at once on my PC. A one hour recording in HD is 5-8GB in size. I figured I needed as much bandwidth as possible to stream that size file.

Well it doesnt matter what you got you got even if you could connect to both at the same time it could not combine them. Wireless N should be able to handle that just fine.

Multiple connections to the same source does not equal a faster connection. In fact, the overhead and packet loss of two wireless connections would probably deteriorate the connection and, it would probably be slower than a single link.

I have two dual band routers bridged with one downstairs and one upstairs and connected by cat6. Blazing speeds on 5.0ghz in every inch of the house

I have the same router. This is not the case for me. I assume you are using the latest firmware updates for it from ASUS.

What you do is get yourself a nice linksys router go online and flash linux tomato on that bad boy. Change the config setting to your liking up the transmit power and you got a 5ghz that goes 150 mbs at your neighbors house.
