Our project team shares a single 8M ADSL connection installed on the customer site so that we can receive corporate e-mail etc. Large downloads are not normally required and the bandwidth seems to be perfectly acceptable for the sixty-or-so team members.
We access this by means of a "home" wireless router (not Cisco) which struggles to maintain so many connections (its documentation says it can cope with up to 100 users, but is ideal for 10). What happens is that users are sporadically disconnected from the wireless and often cannot reconnect - at least can't get an IP address - for sometimes as long as an hour - even though the wireless signal is fine. The router is set up to provide 250 addresses through DHCP, so the scope isn't running short.
I've been tasked with finding a suitable replacement router, and the Cisco 1801W seems to me to be about right - however, I can't find anything which tells me how many users should be able to be maintained on this platform. It would be embarrassing for our company to provide a new router which had exactly the same problems as the old one.
Can anyone help?
