Vodafone HG659 downstairs, a TPLink WDR4300 in the lounge and a Linksys E1200 at the other end of the house, the latter two running DD-WRT, because stock firmware is just s***.

 

Total wifi capable devices must be getting close to 50, typically connected at any one time about 10.

Vodafone (Huawei) HG566a I re-purposed after moving from ADSL to VDSL so we could get a good signal in the bedroom. 2.4GHz only though and still very patchy signal at the back of the house and in the backyard area. Not a lot of wi-fi devices attached to my network - two phones, three tablets and one laptop (sometimes two).

I have a Linksys WRT1900AC (rev. 1) for my AP.  It is running OpenWRT 15.05.1 and you can see in the photo the USB serial port connection on top of it, for debugging and unbricking (I was running the beta versions of OpenWRT for a while).  It does not have to work too hard as we only have a couple of Android phones and my old iPad and new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablet to connect to it.  And my laptop occasionally, but it usually has an Ethernet connection.  It runs guest networks on 2.4 and 5 GHz for visitors, a special test network I am using for trying out NAT problems, and the two main WiFi networks on 2.4 and 5 GHz.  Except the test network, everything is bridged to the "Inner" and "Outer" Ethernet networks run from my Edgerouter Lite via two separate Ethernet cables.  The 802.11ac connection from my tablet is great throughout the house - it can max out my 200/200 Mibit/s fibre connection unless it right at the far end of the house, and even there is pretty fast.  But the 802.11n on 5 GHz does not work well at the bedroom end of the house and the android phones keep dropping out and going to 2.4 GHz, which is also quite slow that far away.  So I need another AP to do fast 802.11n at that end of the house.  As my 16 port Gigabit switch is full, the WRT1900AC also has two Ethernet connections, one for my laptop when I have it in that room, and one for my test PC.

Cambium CnPilot E400, has about 18 connected clients. Lives on the ceiling in a cupboard. Pretty happy with it, replaced three other AP's, got it in the recent 70% off discount that I discovered here on Geekzone.

 

 

Didn't bother removing the sticker!

Assorted Draytek gear (2110, 2700, 2710, 2750, 2800, and others). Connected to it: Besides the usual phones, tablets, and laptops, almost anything under the sun (weather monitoring, ADSB, power, water, lightning, soil conditions, my neighbour jokes I work for the CIA with all the gear that's wired up around here).
