[Ham-80211] WAP54 bridge trouble

I agree it is probably the leaves, but it seemed strange how 
it will down load data for a few minutes than get lost.
then after a period, work for a few minutes again.
I was hoping there were some tweaking I could do to the WAP54 
also there are days it works perfect then maybe the rain or 
humidity changes and its gone.
As someone mentioned, it is a very strong link, if there were 
no trees. so I wonder if more power or more antenna gain would 
even help.
my antenna is up about 40 ft. but the neighbors trees are 
about 80 ft.
I cant afford to go that high as a test.
How can I tell if another station is blocking my signal.
I have tried different channels with little success.
how about even a microwave oven interfering?

I am considering buying an amp, I never used one, what would 
the group recommend?

thanks again,
