How to compute maximum user per AP

Hi Guys,

Im setting up my WLAN, im confused because i dont know how do i compute the maximum user per client per AP. Im using AP 1020 series. For example if i have 20 clients if 802.11b,c,a how's the bandwith is being affected when the number of user is increasing.

Thanks,

Jong

Re: How to compute maximum user per AP

Hi Jong,

Here is a cisco doc that relates to this question;

Q. How many clients can associate to the AP?

A. The AP has the physical capacity to handle 2048 MAC addresses. However, because the AP is a shared medium and acts as a wireless hub, the performance of each user decreases as the number of users increases on an individual AP. Ideally, not more than 24 clients should associate with the AP because the throughput of the AP is reduced with each client that associates to the AP.

From this Q&A doc;

Have a look at this great thread that has some "Real World" answers from

Scott,Matthew,Mark and Emily (one of my all time favourite questions);
