Increase the height of the client would be my guess.
I would have to make an assumtion, based upon the lack of information, that something is infringing upon your freznel.
Based upon the levels and distance I would have to say that just by raising it by 3 - 5 feet should net a big improvement.

What heights are you antennas at?
What is the terrain (trees, buildings, etc.)?

I would say you have a faulty part or very bad interference.

If you can see (line of sight) at 2.4 kms should be -60 or so.

Are ou sure you have the piggie on the correct connector on your radio card?

what is your noise floor?

Do you have spare parts? Can you start with changeing radio cards, then pigge, then antenna, then coax?

What I do in this situation is use a site-survey kit and scan at each end for the other end (this will tell you what end is faulty)
