wds speed issues

I have two boxes connected about 0.5 miles apart. Each of them is
configured with hostapd in master mode. In addition, each of them has a
wds link manually setup to the other box.
The intra-box link speed appears to be stuck at 2MB. Is the autospeed
negotiation not available for wds links?
I check the speed by looking at the stats on /proc/net/hostap/wlan0/mac
and it shows last_rx rate to be 2M.
I also know there is potential for higher throughput because if I
configure either side as station or if I enable the wlan0sta I get 11M
reported on the same stat file.
I don't know if this is relevant but I noticed that for wds links
/proc/net/hostap/wlan0/mac does not show any supported_rates.
Can somebody help?
