Compatible easy setup routers to vpn site to site with Cisco asa 5505 that supports NAT

Hello, I am new to EE.

I have tried searching for my answer and found one that was close to my answer but I require a little more info.  Basically the Provider requires us to have a VPN tunnel connected to them. We currently have a Linksys / Cisco WRVS4400N. I can get the vpn to connect but they require a model that will take all traffic coming from my network over the VPN to be NAT'd to my Internet IP instead of an IP in my local address space.  I found out that the WRVS4400N doesn't support that type of Nat. So I was looking into an easy model to configure to replace it, like a RV042 etc... but in my search I found it doesn't either . Is there a model that someone can recommend that is easy to configure and setup to connect to there tunnel. I am not able to use the configure cisco models such as a 5505 as I lack the knowledge so an easy web interface model without having to console would be great. I read a few days ago there is a netgear model that supports that type of nat but have no idea the model. Any Suggestions?

i recommend to use the ASA module ,, it has a very good GUI

Also; juniper has products with easly GUI interface , i heard about them that they are good
but i didn't use them before

I thought that is what most would say. I like the noob interface such as what is in the current model I have. Any models you can think of that support the Nat I need? what about the cisco rvl200?  I found this website about it and mentions NAT but not sure if it will support the nat options I need.  http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/content/view/30237/51/

Ok I guess what would be helpful is to know what is the type of Nat I need to look for in possible compatible models? Is what I am looking for called one to one Nat? or is it MultiThread Nat? or ????

you need to setup a dynamic NAT 1st
then you need to setup a static NAT depends on your requirements ??
