Dear Sir ,
               i have Linksys wireless-G Ethernet Bridge model number WET54G , i have created bridge connection between these two devices across the road around 200 meters , which always keep on disconectcing after a week period then i have to restart both devices to esteblish a connection .

1) time to time my connection between these two wireless bridges keep on disconnecting then i have to restart ( power switch on and off) then they work fine , how should i avoid it ?
                    i herd that point to point connection between two links with dish is a permanent solution , kindly i am looking for a permanent solution .please suggest me one .

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)
