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,
Printer,
Envisalink (wired),
WiFi security hub,
26 wireless sensors,
Blue Ray player,
Roku,
Ecobee3,
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.

    This is a great subject - no idea why it didn't get more traction! I'll play. :)

    Network devices (routers, APs, client bridges, managed switches, etc): 8

    Servers: 4 (Win2K8-R2, Win NT, two CentOS boxes).

    VMs (used for building software): 2 (one CentOS box, one Fedora)

    Personal systems (desktops and notebooks): 9

    Entertainment devices (AppleTV, game systems, Blu-ray, remote control hubs, smart TVs, etc): 22

    IP Security Cameras: 6

    Mobile devices for two adults + four kids (Kindles, tablets, phones): 16

    IP Printers: 4

    Network-connected UPS devices: 8

    Smart / Home automation devices: 14 (three of which are ecobees)

    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 192.168.1.215 - 192.168.1.219).

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