So, there's the modem/router, and pretty much permanently connected via wifi are:
 - 1 x HP desktop PC
 - 1 x Canon printer

If we're home, most of the following items are also probably connected at any given time:
 - 1 x HP laptop PC
 - 2 x Apple iPads
 - 1 x Apple iPhone 4S
 - 1 x HTC One M7
 - 1 x Samsung Galaxy SIII
 - 1 x Google Chromecast

Of the nine devices listed above it's likely only two or three or four would actually be in use at any given time, but wifi is switched on on most devices so they connect pretty much as soon as we walk in the door.

My Sony blu ray player also connects to the wifi, but only when I tell it to check for firmware updates, etc.
