We are trying to form the mesh link between the IAP-175 at a distance of 500 meters.
I know that we don't need to do any configuration doe IAP.
We have connected ANT-2x2-5614 antenna in both the IAP.
But mesh link is getting established only up to 150 meters and not more than that. We have a clear line of sight and also configured transmit power to maximum
Can anyone say whether can we establish mesh link between IAP-175 at a distance of 500 meters with antenna mentioned above?

Have you tried increasing the power levels manually on 802.11a on the AP ? But that change may not get the distance you are trying to achieve considering that it is using 802.11a to do the mesh link.

Does the height at which the antennas are placed affect the distance between the mesh-point & mesh portal.
i think higher the antenna from the ground, the distance of the link can go a bit longer... please correct me if my assumption is wrong.

This is correct, but according to clukas, the bug will still prevent it from working.
