I have about 100 R52H left in stock and have used many but still prefer the R52 for 5GHz links. I have tested excellent perfomance of the R52H on 2.4GHz in a proje...

Hi, Use a routerboard 600 with dual R52 cards and Dual pol 28dBi antenna and implement dual nstreme. You need to have two seperate link likE this then use two Routerboard 1000 to bond the two seperate dual nstreme links at your end and at the other end.

Mikrotik RB52 for sure but 5GHz Turbo mode is country dependent. Not all country allow it . If you are living in China then switch your card county setting to China and you will have 5GHz turbo mode.
I love the Mikrotik RB52 , its standard for me for any 5GHz link.
