Ok, fire's out. :) Turns out, it was a configuration thing on my CPE (an EtherAnt II Long Range). I reset it to factory defaults and reconfigured it completely; works like a charm now with the new 2511MP card at the AP.

Hey guys, I've just swapped out a wireless card in an RB532 AP, from a CM9 (Atheros, 65mW) to an NL-2511MP (Prism 1, 200mW) card. Signals have improved, pings go thru, but thats about it.

Right. For that we're considering using two connections at once via BGP multihoming, with independent public address space. Then if one provider fails, we're down to about half our speed, but the network is still functioning normally.

It might show up in the log.

You can already do something similar to this.
