Thanks for the suggestion but unfortunately still no luck.
I have run the high  power transmitter from a separate 3.3v supply. The serial says "Now sending...failed". Yet it still works fine with the low power module.
The high power still seems to work with the pingpair example though

I got both the high power and low power ones from ebay. They both have the same 8 pins with only 7 being used.
The low power ones look like this

and the high power ones look like this

I am relevantly new to Arduino and have very much to learn on it. I have spent days trying to solve this problem I have but have no luck at all.
I have been using 2 Arduino Nanos with low power NRF24L01 Transceivers with the Led_remote example in the RF24 Library.
All works fine but the range was poor so I upgraded to the higher power versions with an SMA aerial as they said it was a direct replacement for the low power device and there wasn't any need to change the software.
This is where my problems begin. The high power devices didn't work.
After lots of messing, I found the following combinations,
low power to low power = work  smiley
high power to high power = don't work  smiley-sad
low power to high power = work  smiley
high power to low power = don't work  smiley-sad
I have even swapped the high power devices around and they both receive fine. They both also seem to fine in the serial status.
I then tried the pingpair example and both the high power devices work fine.
I really need the led_remote example to work. Can anyone help?
