No, the Genmask entry is OK for all routes. You can read about it here:

I suppose the Belkin is using NAT, something I didn't think about
previously. Then you would have to set up a rule in the Belkin config
which opens port 22 (SSH) or whatever port you want to use. It should
then send data on that port to your laptop.
BTW: Can you ping from the laptop to the desktop?
