If your Linksys router is a VPN router (consumer models are not; some commercial models are) then hook into the router VPN.

If your router is not a VPN router, then you would have to install VPN software on the machines.

I use the first approach with a Cisco RV042G router that includes VPN.  I do not use the second approach and do not have VPN server software on my computers.

To do what you want, you need a VPN router with multiple tunnels. A Cisco RV042G should do what you want nicely.

If you wish to ask further questions, you should offer more than 50 points.

@Tom3333  - We gave you the answer to your question given you only offered 50 points and now 100.

If you want to know how set up site to site tunnels (a non-trivial question needing expertise to answer) you should ask a new and more specific question and offer the points that go along with the expertise required.
