Assuming your clients are Windows based, then I'd do the following:
- Switch to Static IP on ADSL
- Set up Routing and Remote Access in Windows Server to accept IPSec/L2TP/PPTP tunnels
  (your choice!)
- Set up your VPN on your windows clients, there is VPN connectivity in XP, Vista and W7

Or

- Stick with Static IP
- Setup a domain for this location with DYNDNS
- Setup DYNDNS on the Router (or server) to register the IP Address when it changes
- Set up Routing and Remote access on the server (as above)
- Configure your clients (As above).

configuring RRAS looks difficult and I think needs 2 NIC. also static IP from ISP is costly. will go with DYNdns if required. any thing is possible on netgear router level or is it possible to make win2008 server VPN server like XP PC with easy steps..?

Setting up routing and remote access to act as a VPN server does not require 2 NICs and is relatively straightforward.

Start with a simple PPTP setup if you like, and then progress if you feel the urge later to IPSec or l2tp.

There will be 1000 HOW TO articles for RRAS as a PPTP server on the Internet or on here. It'll do everything you want.
