The "other computers" are on the wired network, right?

Considering that you had routing issues before, just to be safe, I'd try doing
traceroute to each and verify the routing configuration. Do all (laptop on
wireless and other machines on wired) show same routing? All using
as gateway?

It strikes me that because it worked with the old base station, perhaps it was
doing routing/NAT from the wireless to wired networks. Could it be that your
X/NIS/NFS configurations (wired and wireless boxen) need to be updated
