This sounds like you have set up NAT in the access point? My suggestion
was that you enabled nat on the olsr GW.

As long as a node in the MANET can access the Internet via a GW olsr is in
use.
An importent consept to understand here is that OLSR ony routes within the
MANET. It can set up aggragated routes via GWs in the MANET but the
gateways must be able to route to and from the MANET if this is to work.
