Connecting to microwave broadband

Hi all, i am just moving to a new house that does not have a workable ADSL phone line, but already has a microwave broadband link. In the study of the house is a Solwise PoE socket. I have successfully connected by laptop to this OK with an ethernet cable. All works fine.
However, when I then replaced the laptop with my Netgear ADSL wireless router, the router didn't get a connection. I really want to have this working if possible so that I can broadcast a wireless signal around the house for ipads etc.
I think this is because i am trying to connect an ADSL router to a microwave network...and that i need a non-ADSL router (is this a cable router)? Before i buy the new piece of kit, can anyone confirm my thinking and any advice on the best router to go for?
