Now try with High power cards, such as XR2s ;) And as well R52N.. I think the results would be interesting to see.

We always sell 1 radio card in one board on the same freq, we typically don't have much issue with putting a 5 gig and 2.4 gig card in the same box though.

Don't know what kind of "bridge" you are using. If its not a WDS bridge (the only way to properly bridge a wireless client in 802.11x), then you can see some sort of MAC NATing. If you are using MT, create a WDS bridge and that should fix the issue! This is discussed in the hotspot section of my book.

Re: Powerouter 732 100% CPU Load High Latency

You don't have the second core enabled. You need to set multi-cpu=yes in routeros to enable SMP Support :)

Re: Powerouter 732 100% CPU Load High Latency

Two things, The 732 is a Made for Mikrotik Product by Link Technologies, Inc. 1. You have multi-core disabled for one, second, the image you sent shown only 6% load. I would typically not put Dude on a production router, I would put it on another box, like a 433AH with MicroSD card etc.
