A firmware upgrade may help with the problem you have. have you checked with Linksys to see if this is a known issue?
200 meters is pretty far especially for 802.11g. You may find that changing the antennas to directional ones may help or a better way would be to change the bridge to use 802.11n which has a much further range. You should be able to get 100mbps over the 200 meters using 802.11n and this will be more reliable if you use directional antennas as well. I would recommend the BelAir 20  from Belair networks - http://www.belairnetworks.com/products/index.cfm/intProductID/2
Alternatively if you have a clear line of sight between the two buildings you could use a laser link. An entry level laser link would cost in the region of £1500 GBP but these are suseptable to weather conditions (e.g. fog)
