This is my own tutorial so I don't forget for the future.  Stole directly from with modifications for my useage.  I currently use dreamhost and enjoy their SSH access to the servers my sites are hosted on.  

UPDATE: I now added Drush to my SSH access so you only need to run one command to backup and update.

$drush pm-update

The following is for those with limited SSH or access to the host only via web/ftp.

I've setup and tinkered with more personal wireless networks that I would like to think.  That experience led me to install a couple business networks using "Business Grade" equipment that proved very sucessful.  Most small businesses can get away with a consumer grade router espeically if they are only cover a few thousand square feet.  But when coverage and cost are a real issue, I was struggling to find a solution.  Below are some devices I've used and what I've found most success with.

Ever found yourself completely frustrated with your equipment, spending hours trying to figure out why it isn't working only to hire someone to come and click the power button to make it work? It happens to all of us, but why?
