How many computers do you (and other family members) have at home? Are all the computers connected in a network? Do you use a wireless or wired network?

There are two laptops and two desktops at home in total. I have a laptop and a desktop myself. The main computer is an Alienware desktop but the others are of other brands.

We have three desktops and two laptops.

Mine:
Gaming/editing desktop
work/editing desktop
travel laptop

Brothers:
work desktop
work laptop

My network is setup kind of weird. My ISP is wireless so I have POE which runs into my router from my wireless radio. The router I use is a mikrotik RB750 because I wanted to be able to have more control over my connection and what my router does, but because when I bought the router they did not have a wireless version out yet I have a Linksys WRT54g connected to it for wireless.

So far it has worked out nicely. :D Albeit overkill
