I have a LAN network in location A with some laptop 1 and laptop 2 connected to it.

I have a laptop 3 in location B.

Laptop 1, laptop 2 and laptop 3 will be connected to the internet.

Is it possible for laptop 3 to access the LAN network using the internet from location B ? (Assuming I have access to laptops only in Location A and do not have access to any network infrastructure).

it's possible using VPN.

You need in location A a home router with a built-in VPN server. You can then use your router’s web interface to activate and configure the VPN server.

Check if your existing router has a built-in VPN server. Otherwise, buy a new one or check if your router can be flashed with DD-WRTor OpenWrt.

if you flash your router, you are replacing the router’s standard operating system with a new one. and get a built-in VPN server support, so you can host a VPN server even on routers that don’t come with VPN server software.

Be sure to pick up a supported router — or check your current router to see if it’s supported by DD-WRT. Flash the third-party firmware and enable the VPN server.

On laptop 3 you will need to configure the VPN connection in:

Settings  > Network & Internet  > VPN > Add a VPN connection.
