...handle more than one device at a time. Theoretically you can have over 250 IP addresses assigned by most routers, but in practical terms, if a person wants at least 1Mbps and they have a 15 Mbps broadband account, they'd be best to not go past 15 devices. It can become less than that due to wireless capabilities being less than routing abilities. At my house I've had 5 computers on internet at same time while the TV settop box which also has an entry for ON DEMAND was connected. Sometimes I have 2 of my computers running and one or both with virtual systems running so those two may use 4 IP assigned addresses, and on wired not present a problem.
Your question is?
