You've got a wide gap there to have something based off of a Xbee module. There are some higher speed radios out there, but they aren't generally mesh network type devices.

(If so: Yes very overkill but still wonderful.)

You would then install the USBIP receiver on your computer, which also is on a network (either wired or wireless) that can see the AP and the RasPi on it.
