I've been using CMS's since 2001.  I started with E107, tried Joomla, Drupal, MoinMoin, GetSimple and am currently trying TikiCMS.  My recommendation would be to pick a couple of the more mature CMS's and look at the changes they've made for their major release (1.0 to 2.0).  All of the CMS's I've used have had growing pains and have found out the hard way that the way they were doing things was not the most optimal way.  Instead of comparing one CMS to another, compare the same CMS over major versions and see what changes they've made.

Grouping and prioritizing your questions may help getting the information you are looking for.  Groups, users and permissions are all related in some CMS's.  A user is assigned to a group, groups are given permissions, permissions are additive so each user starts off in a group that has minimal permissions.  What goes into the core is a design issue, so again, I would look at how various CMS's have changed what they put in the core rather then compare one CMS's core offerings to another CMS's core offerings.

I've done this on a professional basis for a client.  You need a wireless ethernet bridge such as any of the Linksys WET series (wet610n is the latest).  This takes a wired connection and transmits it over the wireless network.  My distance was pretty far so I ended up with 2 wireless routers, one at each location, and 2 wireless bridges, again one at each location.  The wireless bridges provide a wireless pipe between the two location.  The wireless routers provide wireless access at each location.  This is all secured using WPA.

I've also done it with less wireless devices by using the customized router firmware, such as dd-wrt, tomato or openwrt but you did not seem interested in that solution.

Let me know if you would like more detailed information.
