If you have control of "location A" you might consider
getting another router that has VPN capabilities, specifically
the ability to be a PPTP server. You can then use Windows XP's
built-in PPTP client to connect to Location A's router; then
you'll be participating in Location A's network and will have
access to network resources including servers & printers.
Browsing may or may not work depending on the router's
capabilities. Static IP at Location A is desirable but not
completely necessary.
