Yeah it can be done but the lag is absolutely terrible. I know because I was using the wireless broadband setup connected to the PS3 for months. Trying to play FPS is horrible and it would be lucky if he can get anything more than red bars for your connectivity.

And connectivity is worst for wireless broadband networks at the peak times like 6-10pm.
Anyway, it can be done through windows internet connection sharing like Chiips link eludes to, but one of the most important this is that you need to know that the host pc/laptop MUST have an IP of and the PS3 has to set to look for this IP as their server/dhcp/gateway then they'll be able to get online.

They may need to open some firewall/security ports that PS3 needs but you can look for those ports details.

Might be easier just to get a home phone + internet, or go naked? unless he's in the sticks and cant get wired internet.
