Mike, you really solved my problem! All the links were in channel 1... 
Changed the P2P do channel 6, and all works fine now!

It's interesting how we work on a solution, and forget the elemental 
things.... I remember that  I have done an alteration in these channels, 
but after some tests I forgot this way, and began to search another 
things... The channels are always in my mind, but this time...

Thanks to all!
