@brad Have you considered upgrading to 10 gig ethernet in the house? I recently updated everything that can be upgraded to it to that standard. I was able to find a lot of 4 server pull Intel X540-T1 cards on ebay for under $600 with shipping. I think it would be fun to see how high your upload/download speed could go. Personally, it was a 'because I'm bored' project for the house, but it was amazing how fast backups to the NAS finished after I was done. I'm using Cat 6a.
