Depends on the situation.

Cisco recommends no more than 25 clients per WAP.  But this value is subject to "debate" in regards to the type of traffic involved.

If, for instance, the type of traffic is mostly (sporadic) emails, web browsing, etc ... then the value can go up to 35 clients per WAP.  However, if the type of traffic is video then the value is around 8 to 10 clients per WAP.

thanks for the reply....

i have two access points and 60 clients,

so who will decide to which AP to connect;  either AP or Client itself?

The client.

Otherwise, a nano-sized leprechaun inside the wireless NIC card will flip and golden coin in the air and the decision will be made.  Happens when you are inside or around an Irish bar.
