Wireless Network with VPN or Encrypted Tunnel

Hello,

I have set up a wireless network (Point to Point) from my house to our business which is pretty much acrossed the street. Basically we have a few really nosy neighbors and are really paranoid about the security for the devices.

Does anyone know how we can secure this link using some other technology with WEP?

I'm thinking a soft of box that sits between one network and a wireless router and then between the wireless router and the other network on the other side. This box should encrypt all the data traveling between both sides and should allow any hardware on either side of the network to talk to the other side of the network without special policies or software(must be transparent!).

Thank you so much,
Mitchel

As RLGSC told you, the VPN is the best solution
if you don't have the training to use this solution, check if your wireless devices can use 802.1x
this is more easy to use

RLGSC & Larieu,

Thank you for your comments, I think I need to clarify my question a little more. Basically I can't buy two seperate servers to dedicate to this and place them in the locations where I want the vpn tunnel to happen. I have two small closets in which I was hoping on putting some sort of small vpn device that takes care of the process. This is also necessary because I will be haveing IP-Phones on both sides of the network and they do not support vpn natively so I expect that I will have to use a third party solution unless someone has a better idea for me?

Thanks,
Mitchel

Wmilliga,

You had the right ideas, I decided to go with two Net Gear FVS318's. I'm going to split the points a bit because really all of you helped.

Thank you,
Mitchel
