What tells
$ iwconfig
I am not shure, but doesn't be the wireless-device wlanX and not

On my system (Pismo g3 iBook 600) my airport card is eth0, eth1 is my ethernet port.
I never used iwconfig, simply set the options I posted previously, directly in /etc/network/interfaces, then ran
ifdown eth0
ifup eth0

Isn't wireless-ap for an access point? If you're only using a base station, and not using an access point, I don't think you need that in there.
I'm not sure, I'm just using a D-Link wireless router here, and have never used Apple's base station.
