I've just install a 65Km link using a pair of 32.5dbi dishes at each end of the link - one end of the link is temporarily using an RB112 with an R52 mini=pci card runing in station mode. The other end of the link is using a wrap board with an SR5 card and also has a CM9 connected to a Sector ANtenna for my clients.
I have a signal dependnig on the channel I select of around -78 but I know this can be improved with a little more alignment. I am running Nstreme and Best fit Framer Policy - both ends are hard set to 6Mb for now.
The problem I have is when I run a BTest from the SR5 end of the link in Send mode I get around 2Mb throughput and no dropped packets - when I run a Btest in Receive mode the link drops totally which is the bit I am trying to figure out right now.
I think it has something to do with the 400Mw SR5 card I am using at one end of the link - can anyone offer any advice please as I need to sort this fault before I proceed with fine tuning.
Also - can anyone offer suggestions/tips for optimal settings on a long link like this.
