Internet sharing throu pc to wireless router to laptop/ps3/ipod/ipad

Hi All,

i am having some dificulty sharing my internet connection to my wireless router.

what i have is 3g usb dongle, win7 x32 ultimate pc, lan switch, wireless router. and other devices that will connect to the wireless.

what i want to do is share the 3g dongle internet that will be pluged into pc to my wireless devices.

what i have done :
1. I managed to set the network up with just the router and with the ICS i was able to share the internet connection to another device on the network, it worked.

2. I managed to get the wireless router (built in dhcp) to connect to the same network, all devices that connect to the wireless router pics up the network, shows all devices and also show the internet gateway device.(internet that is shared) they can access ech other like the homegroup and media servers installed... it shows internet connection. But the internet will not access on the wireless devices.

is this a setting the wireless router that needs to be changed? is it a setting on the ICS?

I have tried disabling the dhcp on the router and let ICS handle everything, I dont know how to share internet through one pc to another without ICS so i have not tried this option if one exist.

Can any one please help? ( in my mind this should actually be a simple network configuration. 1 pc sharing internet to a lan and wan)
