Narrowing the scan-list on the CPE will reproduce what you are describing, on the AP it shouldn't have any effect whatsoever.
After a reboot we have noticed a much faster clients wireless registration when scan list it reduced, if it's set to Default or in the above example it will take longer.

You can implement ospf for routing between sites. For L2 communication the easiest would be to use eoip but mpls/vpls would give you the best performance.
