Networking over the internet

By IT43 ·
I was hoping to hear some opinions on connecting to a domain over the internet. Basically I'm looking for an inexpensive way to connect an 2 offices in a building that a share a server. They are currently connected wirelessly, but its a far distance and often crashes. I'm looking for suggestions on hardware and software products that can link the 2 locations over the internet.

Thanks your your help.

A site-to-site VPN Router like Nortel VPN Router 200. About $400 each used on ebay. VPN Hardware is the most foolproof way to go. There are also lots of software-only solutions, but these are all over the map with respect to security and ease of configuration/use. My personal favorite are the old Nokia Cryptocluster 500. No longer a current product, afaik, but very secure, reliable, and easy to configure.
