Sharing high speed connection

How can I have two physical locations (right next door to each other) share a Verizon FIOS internet connection but have the POS computers at location A have a different IP scheme than the POS computer at location B?.  I want to use 10.1.10.x at location A and 192.168.1.x at location B.  
Thanks

I am assuming an ethernet connection between Loc A and B. Basic firewall router at location A and B.
Loc A configuration:
WAN ip address is the Internet connection address
LAN ip address 10.1.10.254/24 Gateway =WAN interface
Add Static route Destination 192.168.1.0/24 Next Hop 10.1.10.253
 
Loc B configuration:
WAN ip address 10.1.10.253 Gateway =10.1.10.254
LAN ip address 192.168.1.254/24 Gateway=WAN interface
You can disable the firewall on the location B router so it only acts as a network router.
 
If you have specific hardware in mind to use, I can be more specific in the configuration.
Enjoy the challenge !

Are you using DHCP to assign addresses or are you assigning them manually?

All addresses are static, No DHCP.  The POS program requires them to be static.

If everything is staic then you're pretty much good to go.

Run the FIOS connection into a broadband router and then plug the cable from each side (location A and location B) into the inside interfaces of the router.

Good to go - unless you want the two locations to talk to each other as well.  If that's the case you will either need a more expensive (real) router that can understand multiple internal networks, or you will need something like a Windows server running RRAS to handle all the routing instead.

Do the machines in Location A need to communicate with the machines in Location B?

No, both locations just need internet access to process credit card transactions.  

Info about the POS program:
The POS program has one server machine and all other machines are clients.
 Location A has 1 server machine and 4 client machines (the server is also a client.)  
Location B has one machine that is both server and client.  

When the POS program starts on the client machine it looks for a server machine.

The problem with having them all on the same IP scheme is that when the client machines at location A start the POS program they are finding two servers on the network and they will not run the program.  

What I need is for the machines at Location A to not see the machine (server) at location B but still have all machines on the internet so they can process credit cards.
Thanks,

I have used Linksys routers in the past.   Are they easy to set up to do this?
Thanks

Yes, their web interface is pretty intuitive and they should support either gateway or router configuration.
