Sharing pdanet through router?

I hope I'm posting this in the correct section. I have been trying to share my pdanet connection through my router. I can share connecting my phone directly to the usb on the router how ever it is painfully slow. through pdanet i'm pulling down 80mbps. The problem is I need to connect throughout the house but I can't make it happen. Any input would be much appreciated. oh, btw the openwrt wireless shows up but it's unable to get an IP.
