I am getting good signals. Like -65 to -73 range. CCQ is also good. When I try to run a Speedtest, I am getting a good download. Like 10 Mbps (which is well enough for the 5 Mbps service I offer). However, my upload rate is horrible. Like 70 Kbps.
Now it doesn't do this all the time, just on certain links. I tried switching nanostations or nanobridges but that doesn't help.
Any ideas? If anybody needs any more info, just ask. I'll gladly provide it as I really needing to get this problem fixed!

Something in band or out of band is interfering with your AP. It can transmit just fine but the noise is preventing the AP from hearing the clients. The clients can't hear the noise, so they don't have the same problem on download.

(not sure why I didn't think of it myself, but that's ok. We all gotta learn somehow...)

We may be switching to GPS when we can get them. That with adding shield kits, I hope to get the signal down. I have 3 5.8s up on that tower with shield kits and they give me no problems. I know they have a smaller fresnel, but with shielding the highest they see each other at is -58 dBm.
That and the terrain of course. Some of these customers are behind a hill. The kind of hill that wouldn't be a problem if it wasn't for the trees! During the summer we hooked them up and they were ok. Then I noticed they got worse in the winter. But recently with all of the rain we been having (avg 5 days a week for a month), and with the trees filling up with sap, some of these connections are impossible. Live and learn.
