on Netflix https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Stranger_(British_TV_series)

started watching this 8-episode series this weekend.  Only got 3 episodes in because my girlfriend prefers sleep over binge watching.  Anyway, there's like a billion characters and interwoven subplots but beyond that, it's very intriguing and delightfully brittish.

I swear it was 192.168.1.1... I could have just reached down under my desk and looked at the address on the router... but I was tired.  LOL

192.168.0.1 or 10.0.0.1 will get you the vast majority.  If that doesn't work open a shell and run ipconfig and the router is going to be the default gateway

This is just off the top of my head:

2 Roku Tvs
1 Roku (external unit)
2 PCs
4 iPhones
Switch
PS4
Xbox 360
Wii U
4 iPads
1 Laptop
Security Cameras
Ring Camera
Printer
Nest Thermostat
6 smart plugs but only 2 in use at the moment

23?  I think that's sort of common?

For some reason I either don't have the right address or can't remember the right IP for the router or I would double check that.

The recent thread made me look up the orbi and it said "up to 20 devices"
Where did you see that limitation?  https://kb.netgear.com/31097/How-many-devices-can-my-Orbi-system-support puts it at 250 devices but recommends limiting to 50 devices if doing HD streaming and gaming.

How many devices do you have that connect to your internet/wifi?

The recent thread made me look up the orbi and it said "up to 20 devices" and I thought, that's not enough for this (upper?) middle-class family of four.

We upgraded our cable internet with Comcast/Xfinity recently and I thought I saw something about after more than 8 devices it reduces speeds, so I went on the router page and looked up what was connected. I've got this list:

2 Laptops
2 Chromebooks
Printer
4 iPhones
iPad
Kindle
AppleTV
Fire Stick
Roku
Harmony Hub
2 Echos
2 Echo Dots
2 Smart Plugs
Wii
XBox
Squeezebox (smart radio)

That's 24 total.

And that's with only 1 TV in the whole house (we used to have a second which would add a SmartTV and AppleTV to the list), only 2 smart plugs (we have a couple more we're not using) and a desktop PC with a wired connection.


Is that excessive?
I've got 15 devices connected right now.  There are probably a few more that are just office.  Though, we intentionally do not have any of the echos or similar products.

Interesting... still haven't decided to pull the trigger yet but I need to setup some slick deals alerts when I decide which parts to buy.

Thanks - if the spectrum thing ends up being more I'll pick one of those up.
