I'm sure this has been done already - but I can't find it on a quick search so.... well, sod it... I shall just go again.
How many devices are you now running on your home network?
I am at 22
3 mobile phones (me x 2 and MrsDibnah)
3 iPod Touch things (kids)
1 Echo Dot
1 Playstation 4
1 work windows laptop
1 MacBook (wife's)
1 iMac desktop
1 Amazon fire tablet
1 x what I think may be my smart meter (it's just an IP address and I can't see the address on the meter unit but I believe it is connected)
3 x Smart TVs (Lounge, Kitchen/diner, kids room)
2 x Sky Q boxes
2 x Apple TV boxes
2 of those devices (The PS4 and the iMac) are on wired connections direct to the BT Home Hub 5 box as they tend to be the heaviest streamers (kids on PS4 and Youtube endless video watching on the iMac).
Other heavy bandwidth users would be Sky and the Apple TV boxes/Smart TVs if there's HD playing I assume.
Our Broadband is BT Infinity unlimited and on tests I get around 10mbps on basic testing tools on my work laptop over Wifi while other services are being used. It's advertised at 30mbps and I think on a wired device it may be up around that if nowt else was on.
So - ....
Am I overloading it all? Would 20+ devices (and more coming I'm sure) start to get to the level where I need a better local network setup than bog standard Wifi on a bog standard router?
Issues I have are occasional Amazon Prime buffering and (maybe every few weeks) periods when I can't actually connect a device if it's gone off for some reason. This is a real pain when it's one of the Sky boxes.
A hard reset of the BT Home Hub 5 normally resolves.
Views? Anyone else got a similar setup?
