Hi - I set up a wireless LAN for a client which has been working well for a year.It is distributed using 2 EnGenius 2611p outdoor WiFi access points and is building to building about 200 yards apart.
Both units are in access point mode and using WDS.

The WAN speed is about 25Mb/s incoming but when distributed out through the wireless access points it is currently dropping to 0.5 Mb/s.

I have the 2 outdoor access points on different channels, is this right? I originally set them up on the same channel but was advised to change them by a network engineer who happened to be visiting during the time I was installing.

Could anyone recommend a software tool that might indicate at which point the network is being strangulated?
