How do you actually use wifi dual band simultaneously?

I have just bought a D-Link dir-825 dual band wireless router after reading reviews that it can simultaneously use both the 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz connections and is intelligent enough to pick which band to use for which process.
Having set it up however I am left with two seperate networks, one for the 2.4ghz and one for the 5ghz. I want to be able to have the two bands running simultaneously on the same network so the router can do its job and pick which one to use and so I don't have to keep switching networks. How do I get it to do this? I've searched and searched for a solution to this and have had no luck. How do I make use of the D-link's dual band 'intelligent' technology? Do I need to upgrade to a dual band wifi adapter or do I need to try and combine the two networks somehow or something completely different?
