Is your wireless network on a different subnet as the wired network?

EG:  Wired, Wireless, ?

If so, you need to make sure the WAPBase is set to forward IP traffic,
and has all the necessary routing rules to connect to the internet
through the lrp box.  The lrp box needs to have some routing rules
forwarding all traffic to your wireless subnet to the WAPbase box.

On the laptop, you should only need to make sure the routes to the
WAPBase are correct, with the default route pointing to WAPBase.

I think this is the answer you wanted, or, I missed the question. :)
