I have two lap tops at home at each end of the apartment often running at the same time and they run all the time. Love to be able to kill some time during commercials when I watch TV which will result in a lot of time on the computer during the super bowl.

why two? Why not just wireless?

We have four computers: two laptops, one media server and one collecting dust :)

Duh, Austin
I spent so much time troubleshooting that I actually went to the trouble of making a network map.

There are only 2 of us in the house, so statistically I am an abberation.

I have my laptop which sits on a table next to a sofa where I normally use it (like now). Mom/sister have a desktop on a desk in the same room (tv room), and my dad has his work computer down in his old office in the basement. The printer I use is set on "share" and hooked to the family desktop. Internet cable modem is in the basement hooked up to a wireless router, which i attempted to wirelessly bridge to another wireless router in the tv room, but instead had to run a 100ft ethernet cable along the ceiling of the basement to the outside of the house, tucked up inside the wood paneling outdoors, and in through the wall next to the other router.

My own world inside my head
Man after seeing that Diagram, I dont feel so bad having four computers, WIth that said, I have 2 pc's in the Office, Those we use for gaming and general use, One in the closet for Data storage, used as a Server for back ups, saving important info, images of the harddrives in the other three computers<updated weekly>, The server doesnt even have a moniter on it at all times. And My laptop in teh Living room, for Internet, bookkeeping, Commercial entertainment, downloading, Picture manipulation, ETC. Of coarse all have access to each other. I dont really need a system anywhere near like this, but It was all setup for your basic Geek factor.

One file server, my two desktops, my wifes laptop, my laptop, and the networked printer.

Server, printer in my wifes office along with modem and router (wireless). My two desktops on my desktop (imagine that!) in the living room. The two laptops roam throughout the house.

Jebus, and I thought I was bad.

We have 2 on the desk, custom made double sided desk, a file server and my laptop.
Same. 3 desktop pcs, a file server, 3 laptops, and a few other gadgets to go along. But, all in all, 7 computers running for 5 peeps

Nam I am
2 laptops( win blows ) around the house via wireless, 2 Desk tops down stairs in the Basement /FAmily room ( 1 linux one winblows ), 1 Linux File/print /weather/web server , 1 Sun Solaris server with a DLT tape changer running legato, a couple of stand alone systems and 2 or 3 routers.

also I would never leave my routers at the default addresses of 192.168.0.X and 192.168.1.x way too many hacks/scripts kiddies that attack those network addresses.
