Default VPN Router

I need to setup a VPN for a client of mine. He has a small home business, that consists of 2 computers, but needs people from outside his network to access files from his computer.

I've read several reviews about low-end routers that support VPN tunneling (netgear, linksys, d-link) and all these routers seem to have problems with VPN. Can anyone out there refer me a decent wireless router that supports VPN tunneling and is somewhat easy to setup???

Don't use a wireles router for VPN, this is what you should do

Good router with VPN like cisco 831, run it into a cheap 10/100 switch and run a Wireless Ascess point into the switch

Another good VPN router for hardwire is the Netgear FVS318 or FVS328.

These are easier to configure for those not use to the Cisco IOS EasyVPN.
