This may be a bit off the topic for this area but it has to do with power.
I would like to know if maybe i could hook up one more computer to an outlet . I curently have 5 comps on a plain 120 hookup. I plugged in the multimeter into the power strip from start to finish as i added comps to it.

I went from 122v with nothing on it and now with 1x LCD 17", 15 " CRT 2x 1WAN+4 port routers, And 5x comps w 400 w psus , the voltage read at aprox 118.7v-119.3v. Do you think i could swing one more?

If you are Lucky you can add just one more Low power Consumption pc. Otherwise you will trip the ring main and then you know you cant.

o no I dont have the main out there on that outlet, my baby gets its outlet. This is just for the folding farm. I may just leave it as is and then just get another router and run lines to the others coms then

I think you should look at the breaker in your house and find a different outlet in the breaker grid so you dont overload one of the areas.
