    DIY or cheap VPN box - suggestions?

    I am thinking of setting up a VPN at home. I have an older laptop that runs Vista and will use that as the battery will act like a UPS so it should stay running all the time, even through power outages.

    I have found three sets of software, Comodo Unite, OpenVPN and Hamachi, but they seem to be quasi commercial. They all seem to use an active connection to Their-Homes and I would like to have complete autonomy.

    Anyone know of a **simple** set up or a low-cost box (max at around $50) that I can use for our home stuff (three laptops and two Tablets) with a pretty much plug and play?

    Searching the Internet finds a lot of options including one with a RasPi, but they all require more technical knowledge than I possess.
