The number varies depending on when I am asked. At the moment I own 8.

I have 4 at the moment. Just gave 1 to my brother :)

1. Porter Cable 890 (with fixed base, and plunge base) currently mounted under my router table

2. Freud FT 2000E plunge router (use it for hand work)

3. Craftsman router (1960's - #315.25031) that still runs very well - use it occasionally just for fun

4. Ryobi laminate trimmer / router

(4) PC-690, one of which is D-handle configuration one of which with plunge base.
(1) PC-890
(2) DW 621
(2) DW 625, mounted in table
(1) Bosch Colt
(1) Trend T4

(1) Festool 1400

I probably forgot something. I like them all, 690 probably my favorite.

I have 3- PC690's: 1- table-mounted, 1- fixed base & one is a combo with plunge and fixed bases. Having three of the same saves me a lot of expense and headaches when it comes to accessories. Certainly there are more powerful routers with more bells & whistles, but these have sufficed my needs for several years. Porter-Cable has a service outlet about 30 minutes from me and their repairs are always painless procedures. OPG3

I have 3 routers. A 1 3/4 Sears router that is about 25 years old and still going strong, a Dewalt 618 (three base kit) that I'm still getting used to, and a laminate router.

2 Bosch PR20EVS - 1 for CNC Shark Pro, 1 is complete kit (Back up for Shark)
1 Ryobi TR30U3 given to me by a very good friend after he used it once (scared him)
2 air routers I really like to use for light to medium work
1 Campbell Hausfeld air cutout tool that I have only used with 1/4" bits as a router
1 Craftsman 18v 9 11582 cutout tool that has only had 1/4" bits in it
1 3 1/4 hp off brand that works OK but I don't think 3 1/4 HP, more like 2 1/2 HP
I might have missed 1 or 2 but if I did I don't use them much.
