I want to create a wireless bridge between two buildings that are 25m apart. I've used NanoStation Locos to do this previously but they were 40m apart. I seem to recall that there is an issue if the stations are too close? 
If this is the case should I look at bridging another way?

You can turn them down so they're not shouting at each other.

Hi, optimum receive level is around -55dBm. I installed a set the other day that were 25m apart and when turned right down gave around -44dBm rx, but they still managed to give 78Mb/s up/down with iperf tests.

I would be tempted to install using a pair of picostations in very low power with a 20mhz channel width. If you really need more than 30mbits throughput then use a 40mhz channel width if you are using a real low transmit power level.

Although the antenna is an omni, it is only 5dbi compared to the 8dbi in the locos.
