Where is you router?  Seems to me you can just run a line from the router to where you want the computer

I'm 83.

I assume what you are saying is that you have Set top box and phone connection downstairs. And your router for Internet upstairs.

Do you know if your computer has a wireless adapter built in?

Some newer computers do.

There are several different options depending on what your wiring options are.

Might be best to ask a family member or friend to help you out as trying to provide details about these options without being there can be difficult.

Not an age thing, but an expertise thing.
