    Does anyone know anything about VPN setup

    I may be wrong, and if I am please correct me, but I dont believe you can setup a VPN between 2 xp boxes without 3rd party software. You will either need 2 VPN capable routers to setup VPN's between the sites, or you will need a Windows 2K or 2K3 server.

    Your routers IP address should not be your DNS server, unless your running like a linux box as your router and doing DNS on it. Set it up correctly or you will have problems in the future. It should look something like this but with your own numbers. Your ISP probably has a help page to tell...
