So, the wireless router has an IP address in the 'LAN' subnet ? And it's 
connected to the Wifi interface ?
If I've understood, there is a wireless link between your 4801 and the 
linksys box and a wire connection the the lan switch ?
I don't understand why your Linksys has an ip address in the lan subnet 
if it should be connected the the wifi interface of your 4801.

At a first view, it seems to be good

Try to allow icmp from any to any on all interfaces and try to ping just 
to verify your problem is not a firewall rule problem.
