I have a critical wireless connection that needs both speed and reliability. I saw somewhere in the forum that simulating full duplex using ospf might be the way to go. This scenario will eliminate the primary problem with both dual nstreme and bonded links: If one of the sub links goes down, the entire link is down. With an OSPF link, if one goes down, in a few seconds, all traffic is going over the other link.

I am working with 2 RB 333 units with two R52s in each. RB #1 Local

Enable both wlan connections, I set one up as an wlan1 ap and wlan2 as a station (this is not necessary It just makes me feel good to receive to a station and broadcast as an ap.

set ether1 to any Local lan address 192.168.209.137/24 set wlan1 to a router subnet address 192.168.88.131/30 -- I use small subnets for p2p links for efficiency set wlan2 to a router address on a different subnet 192.168.88.132/30
