Is there anything to stop me from using a Laptop on a wireless Airport connection as a render node, has anyone tries this with any success.

It will work fine over AirPort.

I normally run my network using the Airport as a DHCP server, will I need to change to using fixed IP address's?. Both machines can see each other, I can use LWSN on the Host machine but SN is not seeing the Node machine.

You are going to have to connect the computers using file sharing, a good tutorial is here http://homepage.mac.com/nonplanar/

The interesting thing is that I tried to run the same kind of network in my office but without the wireless bit(dchp server and appletalk) and I can see both nodes on the host machine no problem, its only the Airport bit that seems to be getting in the way...

Yeah, try turning off "distribute IP addresses" on the airport, I don't know exactly how you have your whole setup, but that may work.
