2 VPN Routers, 3 locations, beginner

Hi, I bought 2 linksys wag130n routers, i also got 2 fixed IP's.
I want to connect Office A with Office B and also be able to work from home = C
Now i know that i bought the wrong routers as they do not support VPN, only VPN pass-through is possible. With VPN pass-through i must use clients and things and if i would just use VPN i could directly just type in the other IP address ( i think ) and it should work. Also this would be then firewall i guess.
1) What hardware could i put between the router and internet to start using VPN ?
 Or just buy new ones with wireless and VPN ?
2) How would i "see" drives and maps on the server in Office A when I am at home ? Meaning , how would i then connect ?
Many thanks,  sorry, I'm a real beginner here.

You would want different routers with VPN-Endpoint.
I recomend 3 like that then you just setup the sites to link together.
Here is a good one:

The routers you have allow VPN Pass-through but then you would need some sort of endpoint router to connect to anyways.

Once the sites are all connected by VPN then yes... it is like you are on an extension of the other networks and they should all route pretty seamlessly. You will want to use different IP addressing at all the locations or you will run into problems... For example: Site A = 192.168.1.0/24, Site B = 192.168.2.0/24 and Site C = 192.168.3.0/24.

Thanks Deoji,  Yeah, new routers will be bought, thanks for the link. Not even so expensive as i thought.
How would it work when i have 3 employees who need sometimes too to work from home ? I can not give them all a new modem/router. Would they then need VPN client software or could i use their mac-addresses in the router config and would this then be secure ?

No you wouldn't send a router with them.
You would need this software for your clients:

Please note... If your VPN usage exceeds 8 users you may want to invest in a VPN concentrator for your primary location. If you get to that point then I really recomend a Cisco ASA.

Excellent, many thanks. We work with 5 persons only and if we grow beyond it will at least mean that i have more money to buy bigger hardware :-)
