Too Many Devices?

My "Smart" Home is running upwards of 60 devices, quite often devices such as Roku, Arlo Cameras, Ring Devices, etc drop off line contsantly. Additionally, many IOS Devices will connect to the router but say "No Internet Connection". My home PC will warn "IP address could not be Configured" I will reset the router and cable modem, then it will work for a while until devices start dropping off. Do I have too many devices? Do I need a second home network? Thanks

Re: Too Many Devices?

Which router model?

Which firmware version? (not "the latest")

Is Smart Connect enabled?

 

Max WiFi devices per band is 32 for NG routers. And even then, you're pushing it
