Try the easy way first - connect to ActiveSync over Bluetooth. This will automatically give you Internet access. Remember this is very limited in range - no more than 10 meters...

so if I place my computer in a pretty centralized location, do you think that I would be able to get the signal through a few walls into a few important rooms? (ie: greatroom, bedroom, who am I kidding,  bathroom)

No. Bluetooth won't psass through walls - you will be lucky if you can get a good connection even if the devices can see each other.
