Hi,
I want to know which is maximum signal gain for bellow those topics for point to point bridge connection:

Tx/Rx Signal Strength:
Tx/Rx CCQ:
Signal To Noise:
Wireless Protocol:

Tx/Rx Signal Strength: When aligning the endpoints you want this as high as possible ( -40 to -65 dBm say)

Tx/Rx CCQ: This shows how many packets get through , so 50% means half are getting dropped. Good TX/RX Signal and poor CCQ is a sign of interference - try a different channel

Signal To Noise: The higher the number the better. Low S/N means interference and will adversely affext performance (>40dB )

Wireless Protocol: This should match - usually NV2 or 802.11 on an AP/Bridge, and I set nstream-nv2-802.11 on a station. NB NV2 does not use your security profile so be sure to enable NV2 security on both ends if using this protocol.

The actual TX/RX Signal is a function of TX Power, Aerial gain, frequency and distance - Mikrotik have a wireless calculator on their download page to help you work out what you should be getting. Use MCS7 values for TX Power and RX sensitivity values.

“Many 2.4 GHz 802.11b and 802.11g access-points default to the same channel on initial startup, contributing to congestion on certain channels”. So while there are several available Wi-Fi channels, chances are that you and all of your neighbors are actually using the same single channel for your wireless communication.
