The only things you will have to change are the IP address on the TZ180 and the IP address used at the remote site to connect.

the computers hardwired to the tz180 are able to access company's network folders.  for those who has a laptop and accessing the tz180 (sonicwall) has problem VPN'ing to the network folders.  

i think the site to site is live.   I notice that the wireless user are not able to print to the printer directly connected to the sonicwall.  I think the issue here is the my wireless setting on the tz180.  would you or anybody know what is restricting the these connections?  which policies?

You will need to setup a firewall rule that allows traffic from your WLAN to you LAN. The TZ180 by default places the wlan and lan on different subnets and also by default all traffic is blocked from wlan.
