How do I setup a Foritgate VPN Tunnel over Wireless?

So I just got some Fortigate firewalls and I set up a point to point VPN with them over Cisco wireless bridges. Basically my workstations keep dropping connection now that the firewall is in place. However if I bring the firewalls back to my office and hook them up over wired, the workstations behind the firewall run fine. Obviously I'm missing some config on the bridges but I cant figure it out. Anybody have any ideas?

So the VPN's come up and you can ping back and forth, but the connection occasionally drops? Or you don't get any connection over the VPN period?

Thats correct my VPN is working, however it randomly drops out. I was originally thinking it might be an issue with timeouts but I think it is too random for this to be the case. What it looks like is that the sendig firewall is dropping arp entries and is having to re-send the arp requests. I'm not really sure why this is happening though.

This is actually happening over the wired connection now as well. I'm thinking this has to be a bug in the fortigate software.

Had this all setup correctly. There was a bug in the software, and I am shipping the firewalls back. Thanks guys.
