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!

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.

    • Here is how many competitive permits are "remaining" in each state after round 27: (bonus points: reply with the states/territories/districts that are already "settled".) AL 4 AR 1 AS 2 AZ 5 CA 2 CO 53 DE 2 FL 5 GA 48 GU 3 HI 3 IA 40 ID 19 IL 7 IN 19 KS 113 KY 22 LA 9 MA 3 MD 11 ME 1 MI 48 MO 54 MP 10 MS 27 MT 33 NC 12 ND 22 NE 8 NH 1 NJ 2 NM 26 NV 17 NY 6 OH 24 OK 9 OR 2 PA 2 PR 1 SC 12 SD 47 TN 17 TX 36 UT 23 VA 8 WA 22 WI 22 WV 2 WY 11
    • Almost 89% and $250 Million after round 27.
    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.
    • https://www.lightreading.com/5g/the-quiet-brilliance-of-t-mobiles-5g-spectrum-strategy/a/d-id/779589? Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
