We're seeing only 50% of available bandwidth when using EoIP so stick with WDS.

Use WDS where possible, because it allows bridging of the 1500 byte frames without having to split them into two smaller frames the way EoIP has to.

and use WDS in to ways - first - dynamic to see which links are stable and then select stable links and create static WDS environment. then disconnects will be brought to minimum.

and EoIP is more like ethernetish solution and since wireless is not duplex it hits performance pretty bad.
