Now that's interesting.  In my own setup, I simply use the router as a 
wireless access point, and I disable its DHCP server so as to use the 
one on my gateway.  I've just verified with wireshark on my gateway that 
the router isn't NATing anything; all packets from my wireless systems 
show up at the gateway with their assigned addresses.

Maybe the router doesn't NAT unless the wireless node has an IP address 
that it assigned.  Is perhaps a fixed IP address that one of 
your wireless systems is using ?
