If you have a mobile connection, try bridging the wireless to the Ethernet on the laptop. Connect that Ethernet connection to the WAN port of your router using a crossover cable. I recommend bridging instead of ICS because you don't want an additional NAT layer in the mix here...

Maybe I'm missing something here. Will that not require two public IP addresses--one for the laptop and one for the router? Maybe that's not a problem with T-Mobile?

I guess it's going to depend on the connection. I haven't actually tried it... :)

I think I'm really going to have to tinker with bridging here and see exactly what restrictions there are. :)
