Only 10 macs at a time on AP?

Unanswered Question
Jun 2nd, 2010

My science teachers have a macintosh cart but they say they can only get 10 of the macs on at time onto the AP-1142N. We do not do authentication yet so is there some kind of limit-which I could not find anywhere.


thanks

By default there isn't any limit on the number of associations to the AP.  Is this an autonomous or lightweight AP?  If its autonomous you can configure the maximum number of associations per SSID with the mac-associations command.

Wireless > Radio of your choice > RRM > General > look under "Profile Threshold For Traps" > "Clients (1 to 75)"


By default, it's set to 12 but you can increase this.


Hope this helps and kindly don't forget to rate useful posts.  Thanks.

what are the macs doing when the 11th user tries to get on?  I have seen connectivity issues when the currently associated users are sucking up bandwidth.

I am not in the room but my internet traffic device tells me that these things are always doing those huge dreaded bandwidth killer Apple software updates. I'm wondering if that is strangleholding them.


thanks

That would not supprise me at all.  When enough macs are updating, I see a performance hit on a gigabit wired network as well.
