I guessed that was the problem before I even read this.  :)  AP's tend
to not obey their default gateways, so you can't talk to them from any
other subnet.  Make sure the gateway is set correctly on the AP, and
if it is and it still doesn't work, then check with the AP vendor.

You can probably do a 1:1 NAT from a LAN IP to the AP's IP and work
around a broken gateway.  If nothing else, you might want to try that.
