Thank you for including the above "sketch" which finally let me understand what 
you are looking for. 

 I doubt that I can help, but I'll think about it--my setup is somewhat 
similar to what you describe except that the "debian notebook AP" is replaced 
by a commericial wireless AP (but, as your sketch shows, wired to my router / 
modem).

Aside: I wouldn't think it should be very difficult, since it seems to be off-
the-shelf functionality you can buy, but ...
