I have a two RPi in the house and one Fritzbox ADSL modem/router/wifi/SMB
server. One of the RPi is a dedicated media player (XBMC) where the files
are on the Fritzbox, it'll also stream (uPnP) to mobile devices I have
lying around the house (LAN only). The other does my webserver, irc, DNS
and occasional thinkering.

I want at least one more device but I need to find a stovetop that can be
controlled from an external device to attache to it first :(
