I think S/N raiot was meant, meaning signal/noise. So how much "louder" your signal is than the RF noise that's around. If your signal is too weak and nearly at the level of the noise, the receiver on the wireless card cannot detect and decode the signal correctly.

Your problem is the very low CCQ (11/15) - with such values nearly nothing will really work OK.
You have to try to increase your signal strength (which is marginal, too), and see why your CCQ is so low. Interference from other 802.11 signals or other rf sources?

PPPoE client interface: MRRU configurable => MLPPP included?

I see that we can configure the MRRU value in pppoe client interfaces.
AFAIK this is only defined/used for MLPPP interfaces. Does this mean ROS 3.0 does indeed support MLPPP now?

In RouterOS V 3.x you CAN do this without the need for the additional two routers. RouterOS 3.x does provide a feature called "interface based routing". This enables you to use more than one pppoe uplink where every pppoe uplink has the same gateway ip address.
