4 people with 4 devices each connecting simultaneously. Seems a bit much!
Depends really. There are 2 of us here but the following are connected 24/7:
1. Smart TV WIFi
2. Kindle Fire HD stick
3. Epson WiFi Printer
4. TV Set Top Box
7. iPad (pretty much always at home)
& we only have the 1 TV. Plenty of families have 1 main living room TV, then kids have a TV with ps, xbox or whatever, most of these new TVs are smart. So I tip plenty of homes have 16 devices "just online" without doing anything.
The ones above rarely if ever get fully turned off. Then we both have a work phone and personal phone, so if we are both home you have the following auto connecting.
8. iPhone Work - me
9. iPhone Personal - me
10. iPhone Work - not me
11. iPhone Personal - not me
Again where they have 4+ people there might be more tablets, more phones, more kindles etc.
Then say I fire up the work laptop to do some work, that's 12 devices online, when actually I have only manually connected 1 device. All other 11 are just online by us both being in the home, even if they are not in use.
When I lived with 5 people we used to have 30+ devices online some evenings.
Interestingly when I had Sky, we had these constant reboots, and when Sky said it's because we have more than 16 devices connected, we at first only thought we had about 10. It really adds up when you count everything.
