Proxy Server or Remote Desktop

I have a Windows PC at home connected to the internet through a Linksys WRT 120N Wireless Router. I'm trying to access my home network and the internet through my computer from a remote site. I have heard that I could set my computer up as a proxy and connect to it through a web browser (by typing the IP into the URL?) or I could set up my computer for remote desktop, log into it, and basically operate as though I was at my home computer.
What would be the easiest way to accomplish what I'm trying to do and how would I go about setting it up?

I think you should set up a remote desktop (I'd recommend using team viewer).

Thanks. I'll try setting up Team Viewer and see if that does the trick.

Okay, so, I tried installing Team Viewer on both computers and am not able to connect. Upon further investigation I can't even ping my home PC IP from the remote location. I can ping Google, Amazon, and various other sites like that, but not my home router IP. The ISP provided IP, that is, not the NAT one.
