Skyler. The answer in this case is to us a VPN to your home or other 
location that Internet with a Public IP address. You effectively run a 
tunnel to that IP and that is the on you control. You are creating a 
tunnel from that location to your wireless site. One of the most popular 
is OpenVPN but has a steep learning curve. A good alterternatin is 
Softether https://www.softether.org/ from Japan, it is open source, 
emulates openVPN and others and allows a vpn connection. It is available 
for Window, Mac and Linux so should be east to add.
