I don't know if this Linksys has VPN possibilities on board. If it does
it maybe supports dyndns(.org) resolution. Then your modems WAN-port IP
could also change. We do use this with quite good success since a while
from several locations to find ISP allocated dynamic IP-addresses. Then
you need to tell the both sides (we only use ZyWALLs both sides - so
don't hit me if this is not true for yours) what remote subnet tunnels
need to be built and giving a looong shared secret to both. That's it.
Connection ist completely transparent if you traverse from one private
net to the other over public Internet.
