adding wireless to small network

Specs: N/A
In our office network, the modem from our ISP is connected to a 24-port switch that connects to various computers and switches in other parts of the office. The LAN works fine, and all wired computers can access the internet (using static IP addresses with the address of the modem as the default gateway). We have a couple of wireless routers that I want to connect to the LAN at various points to provide wireless access. I gave them unique IP addresses (all on the same subnet) and set them up as access points. I can connect to the the wireless network and access the local network, but not the internet. How do I fix that? (I've been experimenting mostly with the Belkin F5D7230-4) Thanks.

What's doing the NAT? Is it a DSL connection or FIOS, where the device provided by the ISP does it? If so, you can put the wireless router in place of it.

I don't know what's doing the NAT. I'm in West Africa -- the local ISP has a VSAT, I'm not sure exactly what method is used to connect clients. It might work to connect the router before the switch to provide wireless in the main office, but I want to be able to connect the other wireless routers to the network in other parts of the compound. (It's a large compound, lots of cement block walls).
