well problems don't stop ... I have 
wireless link on distance 4 km, 
AP to Client (hostap) have this signal

from station:

wlan0     IEEE 802.11b  ESSID:"CAT-NET"  Nickname:"WAP1"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.422GHz  Access Point: 00:11:11:11:11:11
          Bit Rate:11Mb/s   Sensitivity=1/3
          Retry min limit:8   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:1111-1111-11   Security mode:restricted
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality:14/92  Signal level:-92 dBm  Noise level:-100 dBm
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:13  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:3  Invalid misc:80405   Missed beacon:0

(this is the lowest quality, max quality is about 20/92)


from AP same station:

wap2:~ # iwlist wlan0 scanning
wlan0     Scan completed :
          Cell 01 - Address: 00:11:11:11:11:11
                    Mode:Managed
                    Quality:232/92  Signal level:-35 dBm  Noise level:-39 dBm


and this link is working fine for past 6 months, now I'm trying to put BRIDGES 
on boths sides, as we told to do, WDS HostAP in Master mode, you do remember,
and APs don't see one another, why ??? oh why??? can someone please
