Yes, the Draytek are probably the most feature-rich products in the low end.

Draytek - www.seg.co.uk in the UK. Low-cost do-it-alls.

I don't doubt that, but the few sites I looked around for wireless routers I
know of didn't mention anything or very limited stuff about vpns.. :o

A wireless router will be much simpler - I would personally avoid the
Netgear as they are not 100% standards compliant.

Could you not fudge it with a wintel box with a wireless card running as a
nat/rras/vpn gateway stylee thang?

Thanks Jan.  Ideally the hotel can give me a wired external connection
rather than the 192.168 wireless they have.  I still have to stay compliant
with HIPAA which is why I figure the VPN will work.  I will check out the
Linksys if it comes to that.

Thanks!

Greg, the netgear 802.11g devices do routing and bridging.

My company runs residential communities for the elderly and nursing homes in
Florida.  One of them is in Port Charlotte which took a direct shot from
hurricane Charley on Friday.

Fortunately, all our buildings there are made out of poured concrete and can
take just about anything a hurricane can dish out.  But we did have some
roof problems, blown out widows, and no power or water.  We don't expect to
have any of this back anytime soon either.  Our employees are also dealing
with their own disasters.  Amazingly, there entire are has no phone
services, no cell services, but our AT&T frame relay is up and running just
fine and never went down.  The terminals we have running on auxiliary power
are running and connecting just fine.

We are moving all of our residents to a couple nice hotels in Tampa (Harbor
Island for those who know Tampa) while we straighten out our location in
Port Charlotte and make it livable again.

This gets fun because I have to set up remote offices at the hotels for
operations and activities.  I have a Watchguard firebox at out main office
and can easily make a VPN connection with another Watchguard device at the
hotel.  From there, terminals can connect back to my metaframe farm with no
trouble.

The trick is that the connection available to me is wireless. I am trying to
find a device (quick) that will bridge the wireless connection available at
the hotel to my Watchguard as the external connection.
Since we started this on a Sunday, I have not yet had a chance to ask the IT
staff at the hotel for a wired connection.  I am organizing on a worst case
scenario and just wanted to get some ideas from everyone.

all ideas greatly appreciated!

Greg
