Redirect internet connection to wireless router (was: Sharing ppp [...])

Hi all!

I tried hard a few days ago to share a ppp internet connection through
the wlan interface on my laptop. I just found out that this is not
possible because my hardware can't do AP.

So, I was wondering if I get a standard wireless router and feed it
with an internet connection from the laptop, configuring my computer
as a dhcp server.

Would that work? Did anyone already tried this?
