Carl, Thank-you so much for replying. Please understand my comments were not meant to be ugly. I know you guys have hundreds of threads out there and believe me, TPLink isn't the only forum I poised this question. I'll investigate the option of obtaining a business solution to augment my current implementation. MUCH appreciate the feedback! Sincerly, the Smart Home "pioneer" :\

@Carl 

In thinking about this further, would it help to disable DHCP on the router all together; forcing each of the devices to be manually set? 

I know this would become a bit of a nightmare for me, but willing to do it if we think it would free up critical processor power.

No because at the end of the day even if you do static IP, or expand your DHCP Lease range its still an IP and a connected device.  It all comes down to overhead and CPU usuage.  Chipsets in the routers just need to catch up with the higher number of devices in a home.
