The filter in the Maxim2829 in the XCVR2450 that we used can be
configured to 0, 100Hz and 30kHz and the default is 100Hz I believe? If
you didn’t change anything there this cannot explain your problem. Any
filter than goes above 150kHz would be a problem for the centerish
carriers in 802.11 OFDM (~300kHz carrier spacing).
what happens if you TX a sinusoid and stepwise tune the RX to slightly
off frequencies (take note of the actual RX LO frequency when doing
the sweep - the difference to that one and the TX sinusoid matters).
Does the RX power also start to decrease as soon as you set the TX-RX
offset smaller than 150kHz?
PS: as Sebastian said, the outer subcarriers being lower can be
explained by odd decimation factors like 5 - which causes the
digital-downconversion filter chain to change to a single CIC stage I
