Setting up a VPN between 2 locations with Cisco 1811 Router

We are opening a remote location and I am looking at setting up a VPN.  We currently have a Cisco 1811w router and I am looking into purchasing another one.  I would like to have all the network resources available at the new location.  Can anyone give me any hints or tricks on how to set this up?

Hi,

I advise to buy ASA 5505 if you don't want to use WiFi, it is cheaper, and stronger

I think that you are looking for a a L2L configuration.

Do the routers are going to have a Dynamic or a Static IP?

Take a look at VTI. It is the newest and best way to connect two sites via a VPN.

There is Dynamic VTI and Static VTI - depending on whether you have a dynamic or static IP address from your ISP will determine which VTI you should use.

VTI or GRE over IPsec also is an option depending of the features that it offers and your needs.
