I advise cisco ASA 5505, it supported IPSEC and SSl VPN
QlemoC++ DeveloperCommented:
There are really a lot of devices out there capable of (IPSec) VPN and/or serving as PPTP server. The recommendations depend on what you have for favours, what you already know about VPN router, and much more.

To tell out of Thin Air:
I cannot recommend Cisco, as it needs some knowledge.
WatchGuard Edge (X) devices are "easy" to configure,  as are Draytek Vigor.
My device choice is always a Juniper SSG, but that is nothing cheap.

Further, it depends on what is available at your local stores (Indonesia), which is to be favoured over e.g. US brands, because of quick replacement on failure, for example.
sonicwall lower end models are easy to configure, gui/wizard driven
Prepare for your VMware VCP6-DCV exam.

Josh Coen and Jason Langer have prepared the latest edition of VCP study guide. Both authors have been working in the IT field for more than a decade, and both hold VMware certifications. This 163-page guide covers all 10 of the exam blueprint sections.

Take a look at the netgear line of routers/firewalls http://netgear.com/Products/VPNandSSL/SSLVPNConcentrators/SSL312.aspx

This is quite a nice entry level device. two endpoints for under $1000
The best solution quality/price is Mikrotik, less of 200$ License Level 5. You can install into 2 Pc machines , in 15 minutes easily you can bridge ( if it is necessary ) the two LAN . Depends of your knowledge about netwoking, you can install helping with http://wiki,mikrotik,com.

If you dont want to install into pc, then buy a router with  your needs, with appropiate level license.


Choose flavours of interconnection.

I like openvpn, its secure and easy
