The type of encryption shouldn't make a difference to sharing ability.
It's 2 completely differently networking layers.

Though, how are you sharing it? Are you building custom firewall
rules, or using some automated sharing via a configuration option?

No, very simple: Plug in UMTS Stick and WLAN Pcmcia card, connect mobile broadband via NetworkManager and then create a new WLAN network also via NetworkManager like it is explained in .
It automatically adds DNS forwarding via dnsmasq (,I guess).

And, how I said, it works with WEP64 but not with with WPA.
