Running a MBP and Apple TV on the 5GHz band won't work. I wish pple would address this - it's known and common issue for all users of the MBP and ATV3.
For those of you with this issue, configure the 5 and 2.4 GHz networks separately (on separate SSIDs) and when you want to use AppleTV with your MBP, select the 2.4 network.
Apple, please address this obvious shortcoming.

There are many that do run the Apple TV with a 5 GHz network and encounter no problems.
5 GHz networks are good at avoiding interference but are rather short in range and easily blocked in comparison to 2.4 GHz networks, I suspect you are using 5 GHz under the wrong conditions.

I have the router about 12 feet from the AppleTV and I sit about 12 feet from the TV (a triagnulated 12' area if you will). Works totally fine at 2.4GHz.
What are the 'right' conditions? Or could it possibly be something I and countless others experience because of a shortcoming Apple needs to address?

I SOLVED the issue Winston - I split my network to 2.4 and 5 GHz and when connected to the 2.4 GHz network it works. Kindly search "MBP ATV 2.4"
... and read how many others experience the same issue and ultimately had one way to resolve it (2.4GHz).
I'm sorry your information did not help me out, you are no doubt a rock star with nearly 65K points.
