Re: Manipulate Data Rates for TX and RX rates.

Leave all TX & RX data rates selected because the OS will try to connect at the maximum data rate possible. You probably have low signal or interferences. Work on that, try changing the channel or increase power.
Good luck!

On tower one, change the wlan that connects to tower two to ap bridge or bridge and on tower two use station wds.
It would also help if you could post your IP routing configuration on those towers.
