I'm seeing a bunch of friends and relatives who are having issues due to the 16 or 32 device limits on most ISP provides modem/router hardware.

 

This got me thinking - what is the typical number of devices you have on your network these days, wired & wireless, and any tips on a replacement device when getting to the 30+ mark

 

 

 

Looking at my home Advanced Tomato based router (r7000) i've typically got 30-45 active devices at any point in time depending on time of day.

 

My brother in law has a HG659 from Spark and they've probably got 25-35 devices at any point in time which is causing them issues.

28 wireless and 8 wired.

Use an ASUS RT-AC68U and it seems to cope fine.

I've got under 30 devices but yeah my HG659 is playing up sometimes, like yesterday evening decided that we don't need wifi. 3 rounds of restarts - back to normal. as there're more devices on the way, I'm searching for budget upgrade.

Yeah just me and the wife now days but our average is around 25-28. But the first thing I did when connecting to fiber was buy a decent router.
