Anyone know what he's using to move the mouse between the two computers? Pretty interesting, wonder if it causes any mouse lag when in game while hooked up to whatever program does it.

If I had to guess I'd say Synergy.

There are various programs that let you do this. Synergy is one program you can look at. Couldn't tell you about lag.

Would it work over a router? like desktop ethernet and laptop wireless.

It will work over a router. You may need to set up a network between the computers, but that's not difficult. I haven't used a program like this so I don't know.
