Right now about 10 counting a managed switch and wireless access point. But easily more than 20 if I pull my work laptop(s) out of the bag, switch on a couple of old devices that still work and start all the VMware Fusion and KVM VMs on a couple of machine.

169 according to my Unifi controller. And that's with a bunch of IoT gear not connected...

So I'm already seeing that these devices that only support 16 or 32 devices, especially ones with small NAT tables, aren't really suitable for modern households.

timmmay:

 

6: two Broadlink Pro, two phones, Roku, laptop. Sometimes a tablet or work laptop. Everything else is on Ethernet.

 

 

isn't the 32-device limit of the hg659 for both wired and wireless combined?

 

not sure how many devices i have, but i'd probably run into that limit.

 

 

 

 


Banana?

16 devices certainly isn’t suitable anymore but for 80% of households 32 devices would be plenty. Most families would have 2-4 PCs, a couple of smart TVs and 4-10 mobile devices. 32 devices gives plenty of headroom.

This group isn’t a ”normal” group of users.

Thanks for the heads up about the limitations of these routers as many of my friends have them. The Huawei my ISP insisted that I use is still in its box, I use an ERL3.

 

My partner & I no longer have flatmates, so we're down to 6 VLANs with 22 wired devices, 10 wireless & 13 VMs among them.
