Your client machines should have VPN clients built in.

At the other end (e.g. your office) you need a VPN server (or endpoint). All
you need to do is buy a wireless router/access point that supports acting as
a VPN server. All the major vendors have such products.

Alternatively, just buy a router that's a VPN server -and- attach a separate
wireless access point. The router will do the routing, the wireless access
point just rebroadcasts stuff wirelessly.
