I have no experience with that GPS device; I assume it gets power over PS/2 and puts out GPS over serial?

If it's a raw serial line your biggest problem is that I doubt the router has a serial port - you'd need to get a usb-serial adapter.

Assuming your gps outputs NMEA you can configure kismet to talk to it directly and point it at the serial device (/dev/ttyUSB0 probably, if using a usb-serial adapter). Otherwise, install gpsd.
