Help required networking psp with router

  1. Hi.

    I have a laptop with a mobile broadband connection that connects to the computer directly using a usb port, and I also have a Belkin G+ wireless router. I was wondering is there any way to set this up so I can connect a PSP to the router wirelessly, and allow it to access the internet connection on the laptop. The laptop is wired directly from the built in network card to the one of the routers LAN ports, and I have been able to connect the PSP to the router but haven't been able to connet to the internet. On both the laptop and psp i have been able to access the routers setup page using their browsers. But because the router isn't connected directly to a internet modem using the WAN port it doesn't detect a internet connection.
    Any assistance would be greatly appricated.

    yes, the router needs to be setup for the psp by forwarding ports to its
    LAN address.
