How many devices connected to wifi in your house?

For the fun of it, count how many devices you have in your house connected to wifi/home network? I counted 12 my house (counting cell phones of course).

 

Btw totally cool use of my old Evo was converting it to a security cam with web server in my garage. Have IPcamera app on my current phone to monitor it - use it all the time to answer 'did I close the garage?'

 

Edit - 8 connected to wifi, 4 on Ethernet.

Just phones, laptops, tablets in my home. Any devices that are wired get a gigabit wired connection. Wire is too cheap to run inside the walls to have to deal with the headaches of wifi.

I suppose I shouldn't have said wifi only in thread topic as I counted quite a few on my wired network as well. So how many total on network then?

hmm 

1 Wireless bridge (bluray and desktop connected to it)

3 phones

3 tablets

2 printers

2 desktops

1 laptop

2 psp's (intermittently)

 

I'm waiting till black friday to pickup a new router (plus probably a new bridge and maybe an extender) :) Not everything on that list is turned on all the time, but the wifi also gets used by family when they come over as cell receptions is poor in some parts of the house. I probably need to get a hammer out and add some wire!

Not a bad list other than that adt crap. Go with the little guy and support your local economy.

I wanted to use a custom system based out of Jacksonville but my wife's only condition to wiring our house was going with ADT since she trusted a name brand. At least with a USAA account, they offer a decent rebate.

Adt uses Honeywell panels. Adt finds every way they can to get around the regulations and charge you 10 times what you should be paying for the services. About 30% of my work is fixing an Adt screwup.

 

Back on topic, I forgot about a Kindle fire and a galaxy tab 2. And soon to be a xbox one and ps4 witch means I'll need another gigabit switch.

Currently 5 wireless (2 phones, 2 tablets, 1 MacBook) although I could fire up some more devices if I felt like it.  I'm guessing I have about 18 total IP devices plus my router that get regular use.  Encrypted MoCA between the rooms - once you go MoCA, you won't go back unless you tear out the walls and put in Cat 6 (which I think my landlord would frown on).

I looked at tons of systems and prices and I don't care about names or how it looks just how it works and ADT was the winner as well for me. Love the Pulse setup especially after they fixed the issues they had with the rules you set for automation. My favorite but simple one is when the alarm is armed at night the indoor motion turns on the lamp in the living room.

It does work pretty well for being a pretty basic all in one system. I looked into Creston and Control4 but my wife was way overwhelmed by those systems.

    • Great job on your analysis of small cells versus the 3.45GHZ and the population coverage requirements. I wonder if the fcc is stalling because they may address the key limitation of of 2.5: the convoluted frequencies. Not sure how they would get there, but it would be better public policy if you could actually use a single license in current times, ie 5, 10 or 20MHz. Of course they could also go in more of a nonprofit or small business direction. But most likely they will keep it as planned given how messy the transition would be. In many/most metro areas BRS/EBS is fully licensed. Would be nice if they put pressure on the squatters.
    • I didn't actually look at the buildout requirements before making that comment - they're definitely going to have to deploy on macro sites if they want to hit the buildout requirements. PEA001 has a population of 25,237,061, of which they will have to hit 45% in 4 years (11,356,677) and 80% in 8 years (20,189,649). If they were to cover the entirely, all five boroughs, of NYC using only small cells (something I'd say is impossible considering their current small cell density), they'd only be covering 32% of the population in the PEA. And this is with spectrum that only adds 300Mb/s per sector and will likely have only 50% the range of their current n41 equipment. Doesn't really seem worth it to me. I'm of the opinion that they're looking to hedge their bets in further EBS/BRS acquisition. 
    • These strand mounts also are deployed with Band 46 (LAA), in my experience. I have yet to encounter a strand mount with exclusively 2/66. 
    • Bought a esim "sim" card a few weeks ago that operates in all of my more current phones according to its app. It arrived a couple of weeks early from Berlin.  Now if my MVNOs would get moving and support more than iPhones and rarely Pixels so I can test this thing. https://esim.me The only item really troubling so far is reviews in google play store keep getting deleted, even 5 star ones.
