    Ugh... an unnecessary amount.

    1 x cable modem
    1 x smoothwall express box (in server rack - wired)
    1 x linksys wireless N router (used as an access point and switch)
    1 x belkin wireless access point (for testing)
    1 x file server running XP pro (in server rack - wired)
    1 x test server running windows 2003 server (in server rack - wired)
    1 x desktop PC running windows XP pro - wired
    1 x laptop running XP home - wireless
    1 x laptop running xp pro - wireless
    1 x laptop running ubuntu - wired
    1 x laptop running windows 98 (don't ask) - wired
    1 x macbook air - wireless
    1 x G1 phone
    1 x iphone
    1 x xbox 360 - wired
    1 x PS3 connected to main TV for movie streaming off file server - wired
    1 x epson inkjet printer - wireless
    1 x HP laserjet printer - wired
    1 x 1TB network storage drive - wired
    1 x internet radio - wireless
    2 x 8 port switches


    And then over the VPN connection to another family members house...

    1 x cable modem
    1 x smoothwall express box - wired
    1 x linksys wireless N router (used as access point and switch)
    1 x laptop running XP home - wired
    1 x ubuntu box for TV streaming - wireless
    1 x epson inkjet printer - wireless DLink print server

    Had to make use of ethernet splitters in the first house as the modem is downstairs, the smoothwall box is upstairs and I need to have a switch downstairs, with only one ethernet cable linking upstairs and downstairs. Haven't mentioned specs because it's impossible to remember them all and they are constantly changing. There is a load of road warrior connections to the VPN as well but I doubt they count.

    I know what you mean... in the past I would've have Windows 7 RTM on the PC before the CDs were even pressed... it's about 3-4 weeks down the line and I still cba to upgrade the RC or put most of my PCs back into 1 piece

    I think some of us here clearly have some form of addiction

    Nothing serious here.

    Main rig is a C2D Q6600
    File server is an RM F series - although it's mostly off these days :/ Probably gonna get rid in the next couple of days, more storage in the main box!
    Media centre is another F series running Mythbuntu
    Just 100mbit networked. No point putting anything decent in a flat until I finally get a house - and when I do, will grab some dead networking kit and see if I can ressurect it Surprising exactly how little of my hardware is new. In fact, the only current new pieces of hardware in my entire system is 1 x 1tb HDD, the CPU cooler and motherboard. Everything else is scrounged from scrap/repaired

    I don't have a home network, I just have -

    1 PC which is getting on a bit, Duel core 2.4GHz, 2GB ram and 2 x 120GB HDD in RAID1 for the OS, with a 750GB External E-SATA drive for all my storage needs.
    1 very old phillips 17 inch TFT monitor. (manufactured 2003 - owned since new)
    1 Router, BT home hub thingy.
    1 Dell laptop, quite old, hardly used.

    That's it!

    I spend all day working with PCs, I really can't be bothered with them at home. This PC does everything I need it to do, including running a few virtual machines for testing. It's badly maintained, and badly in need of a re-format as it keeps crashing at the moment and it's driving me nuts!

    Mike.

    Ive downgraded mine even further to the point where the only network hardware is a wireless router.
    Couldnt even be bothered to have any cables or a small PC as a server anymore, so bought a Western Digital WDTV box and am now just using a simple USB drive as storage

    Wow! I am seriously shocked at the sort of kit some of you have!

    I just have a creaky old Desktop (with a huge list of quirks) for personal stuff, my school laptop and gfs school laptop for general surfing and an ancient airport extreme. Oh and a Wii hooked in to wlan.
