Help, I have been trying to get two Wg602's to work as
desired, all day... Hopefully some can help.

We have a new office that is across the road (about 20
feet).  We want the new office to use our Internet
access, BUT we don't wan the new office to communicate
within our own office.  Therefore, we are treating
the new office as an 'external' client.  The new
office will have it's own router/dhcp.

For arguments sake (or sake of illustration) please
consider the following:

We have four external addresses from our I/P provider
Here are our settings

I/P Provider Gateway:
  Office #1         
  new Office#2 
  {spare I/Ps )     / xxx.005 / xxx.006

We have 2 of these WG602s.  According to documentation,
we thought that we would want to be a Wireless Point-to Point.
I/P Gateway: xxx.01
      + ---> WG602yxxx.003  
                      +----> Wg602x  (across the road)
                               +-----> NewOffice/Router

So I set WG602y to have an external I/P address of
xxx.003   I set up w602y & w602x to have each other's
remote MAC address.
I can ping and get a reply from the .003 Wg602y.
For the time being, instead of a router, I simply
plugged a laptop into the Wg602x device.
I have tried the following combinations.
A. _ Set Wg60x - to have 3rd External I/P xx.004
     and have gateway of xx.003.  Had Laptop be xxx.0005
     Results: Laptop couldn't get out or see anything.
              Could ping xxx.004
B._ Set Wg60x to have new "internal I/P address"
        Set gateway as xxx.003
        Set laptop to  internal i/p address too.
     Results:  pretty much the same.

What are the settings I need to have??? Help...
I have wasted an afternoon on this, and office#2
employees are getting angry.  hence reason for 500 points.
