At work we have a Sonicwall TZ180 at home I have a Linksys WRT300N router taht supports VPN.
How do I go about establishing a VPN connection?

Can I do hard ware to ahrdware or can I use a MSVPN adapter on a computer that tunnels to the Sonicwall?

There is seldom need for having a site-to-site VPN connection from home to the office. Site-to-site is usually for multiple PC's connecting from one site to another. At home it also creates a security risk in that any computer at home, including Johny in the next room playing video games, has direct access to the corporate LAN.
Your best bet is to make use of Sonicwall's Global VPN client. I don't believe you can use the MS VPN client at it will not support the Sonicwall IPSec VPN configuration.
