PtMP: SXT2 -> 2x SXT2 Lite not working (Bridge -> 2xStation Bridge)

Hi,
I'm trying to configure a transparent point-to-multi-Point Configuration with one SXT2 and two SXT2-Lite.
The connection between the master and ONE SXT2-Lite is working perfect. But I can't connect the second client. The only error I'm seeing is a Wireless Timeout in the LOG window. Nothing else. It just can't connect.

If I shutdown client number 1, client nr.2 connects immediately. After the reboot now client1 can't connect.

As far as I understand, I needed only one Device with Mikrotik License Level 4 - the master. The client devices, where only a point-to-point (1client, 1master) connection is needed, level 3 should be enough.

Here are the details of hardware and configuration:

Hardware:
1x SXT2 (Server); License Level 4
2x SXT2 Lite (Client); License Level 3

Software:
RouterOS: 6.35

Configuration:
Quick-Set: PTP Bridge with manual correction (nv2 passwords missing on Client Side) or manual with this guide: Bridging Networks with SXT
Frequency: fixed; Protocol: nv2; Band: 2GHz-BGN, Channel width 20/40MHz CE

Thank you in advance, Peter

Who is able to edit the MikroTik Wiki? this little hint could help others.

I think that wireless modes are quite well described in manual. Unfortunately people are very often repetitively asking the questions that they could had answered if they were using Google or at least read relevant threads of the forum. And I don't speak about the documentation...

Writing more things there will not make more people to read it.

A lot of configuration manuals I found when searching for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint with or without SXT talked about configuring the "master" in "bridge" mode. None mentioned the AP bridge. as obvious as it is AFTER reading the hint, I didn't even think about it, when trying to find my mistake before. And I DID read the manual.
