Using the WAN connection of my WRV200 from remote?

    I'm a newb in networking but i'll appreciate if anyone could shed some lights so I could do some self-study from there.

    I recently got a WRV200 and have it properly installed (firmware upgraded to 1.0.24). these are the things i managed to do:

    - created a VPN login and managed to connect via QuickVPN from my office PC to the WRV200 at home.
    - after connected via QuickVPN, i can ping the computers in my home network
    - after conencted via QuickVPN, i can browse shared folders in my home PC using \\192.168.1.xxx command in window

    What I would like to achieve, is to config this connection so that I could use my home Internet connection from my office PC so any internet activities I am doing at my office PC will be encrypted and through WRV200 without being detected from office network admin. (they might only see a VPN connection to that WRV200 IP but cannot see what's inside :p)

    Is this an achievable application? does this involve manual adding of routings from my office PC in order that traffic will go through that VPN-connected WRV200?

    Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated. thanks.

    One way I can think of is if you were able to use a terminal services connection from your office computer "to" your home computer. Once that connection is made, you can then surf from there. However...

    That's a suggestion and the most I personally am willing to mention being that trying to mask activities on a work computer for access to an external computer raises eyebrows and brings with it "legalities."

    Tread lightly, this is the type of stuff that has a "pink slip" magically appear on your desk :)
