what is local loop in dedicated wireless internet access?

I believe what you mean by local loop is "local loop access" or what we usually call it as "last-mile" at wired internet dedicated access.
That's a term use by WISP (Wireless ISP) to define the link between your AP (as wireless client device that attach to their spot coverage) and their AP (as wireless base device which provide the wireless spot to the customers).

are you talking about local loopback? that's not in wireless but it is a part of tcp/ip stack (of course, in order to use wireless, you need to install tcp/ip on your machine. I can't imagine who's not using tcp/ip in these days). Loopback interface normally has an ip address of 127.0.0.1. It's useful when you need to test some net-related apps but you're not connect to the net/lan.
