Another way is to use a 3rd party firmware on a wireless router - like DD-WRT, which allows you to configure a wireless router to use Wireless for the WAN.  You can install dd-wrt yourself or buy a router that already has it installed for you.



You still must know the passcode for that router but then you can have a home network that talks to that router, and then have various stuff talking to your router, wireless or wired - and the router will handle things from there.



I hope this helps!
