I would say go for 5GHz as well, due to the fact that a 3ft dish for a 2.4GHz is say 26dB +/- , it would be near 32dB for 5GHz system. (Just guessing the increase in gain.)

Higher gain, more output Tx and better Rx.

wds-mode=dynamic wds-default-bridge=corebridge wds-default-cost=100 wds-cost-range=50-150 wds-ignore-ssid=no

You must create a bridge (corebridge) and asign your WLAN and Ether ports to it.

Hope this helps

First try disabling the AP your clients are having trouble with and reenable.

Sometimes this lets us know if there is something funny with the connections.

If the above has no efect, try changing channel while during the time you have high ping times.
