How many clients can be connected to an Access Point

Hi friend,

I want to know how many clients can be connected in Cisco AP 1140.

Best Regard,

Marco.

The best answer is 'It depends'.

You can have 25-30 if all they are doing is email and some web use. If you are doing voice drop that to 15, and if you are doing a lot of video streaming it can be lower than that.

Re: How many clients can be connected to an Access Point

Hi,

As Stephen mention the best answer is it depends.

What you need to keep in mind is that wireless is halfduplex and a shared medium and due to this the bandwith will go down per client.

Q. How many clients can associate to the AP?



A. The AP has the physical capacity to handle 2048 MAC  addresses, but, 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 can  associate with the AP because the throughput of the AP is reduced with  each client that associates to the AP.
