VPN box or router with VPN


I currently use a VPN service to due to ISP restrictions.  however as i have more than one computer i was hoping to get the router to make the VPN connection as opposed to setting up a vpn connection from within windows network settings for each computer.  it would also mean that i could use my voip phone.

are there routers that have this function or do i need something else?

any reccomendations for equipment to do this job/

is the setup as simple as on PC (just enter ip address, username andpassword)?

thank you for any help

There are several SOHO routers capable of making VPN connections, providing that the VPN host is not proprietary. Linksys/Cisco, Zyxel, Watchguard...all good options. I am assuming we are talking about having your home network do a gateway vpn to the office?
Sonicwall is a good brand I implement for my telecommuters.
