You could also get DSL or Cable on, say your parents, inlaw's, brothers,
sister's house and have your servers Rsync to a server at that location.
That gives them fast internet access, maybe split the cost(?) and you have
another off site system...

D-Link wireless with 4 port wired... Gave them wireless and wired... Just
put the server and router somewhere no kids will touch it...
I have seen people screw a cheap 1u box to the (finished) basement ceiling.
This is what he did:

UPS - $50
Router - $10
1u box - $200
Mo-board - $150(?)
250 gig - $120
512 Ram - $100(?)
DSL $360
$990/first year - good night sleep

Personally, I would have gone with a used box...
