Hard to believe that I have almost 60 wireless devices on five WiFi or my networks using three routers. How is that possible?

Where do I start?
Two TVs,
Four laptops,
Two desktops,
Four phones,
Two iPads,
Three iPods,
Security camera,
Envisalink (wired),
WiFi security hub,
26 wireless sensors,
Blue Ray player,
Weather station with four receivers,
2 Sonos Play 1s,
Wemo Insight,
Wemo light switch,
Playstation 3,
Nintendo Wii,
Two wired NAS servers

I think that's It. They're on a Asus AC68U, D-link DIR-825 and a Bell Connection Hub. How about you?

    I have only 14 devices connected via wifi. But I have 3 routers each connected to a different ISP. Sometimes I move devices between ISPs. Or, a couple of days ago we had a power blink and several things ended up on my WiMax because it's on an uninterruptable power supply.

    Grand total: 93 devices total

    Running them all with a Linksys E4200 v1 router (running DD-WRT) and four access points (routers hacked with DD-WRT in AP mode). All hard-wired connections go through gigabit switches.

    DHCP and address reservations are handled via the Windows 2008 R2 box, but port forwarding and firewall are managed by the router.

    I use a Google Spreadsheet to keep track of them all, and have all their reserved IPs split into blocks (i.e. all printers are -

    All our devices are on the same subnet. Guest WiFi network is on a separate subnet, with isolation.
