2 Miles? That's all? The farthest we've gotten is 27 on some old Tranzeo 2.4 gear. It's now been replaced with StarOS, but we're still getting 20 miles, and probably more. What antennas are you using? I'm assuming you've got a really cluttered spectrum?

Hello Mark,

15 miles!!!!!!   HAHAHAHA I wish I was so lucky. We are ecstatic if we
get 2 miles with 2.4Ghz.

We can hardly do 3 miles at times with 900mhz.

IIRC, 802.11 timed out at about 11 miles and StarOS had adjusted those
settings. Not sure what Mikrotik has done, although nstreme may
address that.
