Wireless Performance and bandwidth for directional Antenna

Hi All,

  I am looking at an installation replacement for a remote site that is currently installed as two directional antennas over a distance of about 3/4 mile. This connection breaks to a local wireless router and then transmits through a second antenna to a building about 100m away and breaks out to another wireless router. This configuration is about 6 years old, feeds two remote buildings with a network connection, provides bandwidth upto 10Mbps and is unreliable. Surpisingly there are no weather issues, it is generally a bad local connection.

I am considering replacing this with a point to multi-point bridge system but unsure if it will work. Is looking at a combination of directional and Omin-directional antennas the best option or opting for two Mesh antennas at the main units to cover the 3/4 mile distance and a low power directional antenna for the 100metre unit? Also, over this distance what would be a reasonable achievable bandwidth users can expect over this link?
