Connecting to a satellite uplink through a wireless link between two buildings.

We are having a very strange problem, We have linked two buildings of one of our customers using a wireless point to point link. The customer is using a satellite connection to get to the internet at building "A" through a router/switch. All workstations on this end can see each other and connect to the internet without a problem. At building "B" which is running through the wireless link, the workstations can ping and see the other units at building "A" but, cannot get to the internet. Most of the equipment is Netgear but, we have swapped out linksys for testing. Does anyone have an answere? Thanks, Duckdude

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I know this is an old question, so maybe you’ve figured it out already, but since there were no replies I thought I’d give a quick suggestion. Make sure your “wireless connection” (a more specific product description would be very helpful) at building “B” is functioning as a router, not as a hub. This will ensure it is assigning separate IP addresses and routing the Internet connection to the rest of the computers on that side.
