      Hiya,
      Setting up a VPN isn't something to face into as a VPN newbie. Try VPNs for a bit of an introduction and definitely follow Wullieb1's link.

      What you will have to work out is if you want a site-site or remote-access (Client-to-server) VPN.

      This will depend in part on your routers. What they are and how good they are, what if any VPN functionality have they?

      From what you've written I'd be inclinced to say site-to-site would be best for you. If the routers are Windows Server this will help.

      The most important thing to do is have a test environment for this. It will go wrong your first time and maybe even more.

        Site-to-site VPN is the way to go in this case.
        Tell us what kind of routers/dsl modems are standing over there.

        However, if you're a complete newbie to vpn, I would recommend to hire someone, or test it many times before implementing.

            From Netgear product specs:
            Supports 2 VPN pass-through tunnels (IPSec, L2TP, PPTP)
            So it won't function as a VPN Terminator but you can have two VPN connections through the router if you try remote access (client to server) VPNs. I'd assume this isn't enough. A hardware upgrade will be needed it seems.
            As Dumber said, consider
            if you're a complete newbie to vpn, I would recommend to hire someone, or test it many times before implementing.
