Re: how many client requests cisco AP1252G-E-K9 can handel ???

Salam Faisal,

an AP can handle too many. ideally up to 2000+ clients. However, practically it handls around 30+/- clients effeciently (depends on traffic and clietns type...etc). I have APs sometimes work with 50+ clients almost fine.

Do you have unified or autonomous APs?
If unified, make sure that you are not enabling aggressive load balancing.

for 7.x and later codes it was something like this example:

Note: the doc above say that the config example is applied to 6.0.188.0 and above. Howeber, I remember on 6.0 the place from which you configure the feature is a bit different.

Hmmmmm,

As I said it could be a bug.
You can troubleshoot further by trying to collect debug client output on the WLC cli:

debug client

and then try to connect a client that should normally fail.

I am not sure if the feature is available on 5.0. But for 5.1 here is the location:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/controller/5.1/configuration/guide/c51ccfg.html#wp1085099

actually version 5 (and 5.0 specifically) is too buggy. It will not be a surprise if what you are having is some kind of a bug.
