BULLET M5 Performance!!!

Hellow
This week i install link using Bullet m5 with hyperlink 32.5 dbi dish im 16 miles (25 km), i adjust signal about 51, 52 db. Try test bandwith with two routerboard in sides, get 65 mb down and 15 up with ping stable (10, 15 ms) with airmax enable e ack timeout fixed.
This link i mount in paralel of my actual link with mk i've going 50 mb of real trafic (http, mail, voip, p2p, streaming) with 40 mb down and 10 mb traffic medium. When a pass traffic to bullet m5 link its not working correctly, with this trafic ping its up to 800 ms, 1000ms and trafic its work low.
How i can inprove link performance with this configuration? Theoretically it should go smoothly my actual bandwidth.
PS: Sorry my terrible english.

Hello,
Please play with the ACK timing. Move it more towards 125% of the actual distance in small increments and see if the speeds improvie. It sounds like an ACK probem or interference with ping's that high.

Re: BULLET M5 Performance!!!

I set ACK manualy to 204, its value of calculator give-me to a wireless link 27 km, i try to set value up this value but dont change in the software. I use last version of firmware RC5, how a i can change value ACK more than 204.

Hello,
Are you using 40Mhz or 20Mhz channel?

Can you step down to 20Mhz, and test with higher ACK timing and see if you get better speeds?
Thanks,

Re: BULLET M5 Performance!!!

Hellow
I set channel 20 and set ACK TimeOut to 230 (25 km + 25%)in side ap and side station. But don't work correctly when i change my trafic (40Mbps/32 up/8 mb down) ping up to 1000ms and trought down. I change to disable airmax, change chanell 5500, 5600, 5700, signal level -58, ccq 100%. But dont work correctly, how i can improve this performance.
