I think you mean the the Access Point? Your boxes are connected through a
switch to this AP using ethernet, right?

I'd guess it sets up a default route. From your description (Linux on a
dual-boot box has access only after configuring from the Windows
installation on that box), I'd guess there is also some kind of MAC
registration going on in the AP. I see there is an option in the AP setup
page for 'MAC address clone' - is that feature enabled? You could try
disabling that and see if everything works.
