Re: Help, very low signal :(

there doesnt seem to be anything wrong with your configuration, if you want more power maybe try ubiquiti.

You might want to check out your countries EIRP restriction as the cards you have there with those antennas are putting out pretty high levels already.

Re: Wireless ISP structure ideas please?

For best quality signal you should have signal strength between -45 and -75dBm

if the signal is below -80dbm you will get drop outs especailly if you have encryption on your link.
