How many wireless connections

I have a BEFW11S4 router. I have all 4 wired slots filled and I can connect to the router in addition to the wired connections. I am running a cable modem into the router. Thank you

Yes. 10 and more computers can connect wireless to the router at the same time. I very much doubt though that you LAN party will be a success if you want to do some serious gaming.
The router is a 802.11g router. Theoretical maximum speed 54 Mbit/s. In reality, with a single computer, you are probably good if you get have of it. 10 computers means a lot of traffic. A lot of traffic means a lot of interference because 802.11g works on best effort principle: the wireless cards will listen if something else is sending. If not, they send. If they notice during transmission that there is another transmission starting at the same time, they stop and try again at a random interval later. With one computer there is no problem. Two should be O.K. Three it will go down if you do some streaming or similar. 10. It depends on the traffic patterns but you will most likely end up with huge lags and a lot of packet loss.
Plus you may have interference with the routers of your neighbors, cordless phones, microwaves, etc. I suppose it can be annoying if each time your neighbor turns on the microwave or gets on his cordless phone your game would come to a halt.
It is best to try it but I seriously doubt you will any game going properly. I would recommend to have at least a 8 port ethernet switch and 10 ethernet cables prepared. Better would be a 16 port Gigabit switch if you have a lot of people with gigabit interfaces.

    That is great news I have A1392s. One more question...
    If I have an Airport Extreme setup as a router and feeding internet from a modem/ I wire an express (A1392) and "create a wireless network" the airport utility puts the express into bridge mode automatically.
    How many wireless clients can I connect simultaneously to the express?
    How many wireless clients can I connect simultaneously to the extreme assuming I am using all 50 at the express?
    In other words, Could I have 50 wireless clients connected to each device simultaneously giving me a total of 100 wireless clients?

  • How many wireless devices can be connected at once to an airport extreme?

    How many wireless devices can be connected to an airport extreem at one time? I have 4 iphones and 2 ipads, a goolge chrome and 4 wired devices.

    Any AirPort Extreme produced since 2008 will support up to 50 wireless devices and 150+ wired devices simultaneously, so this should accommodate most users in most homes.

    How to wirelessly connect canon MG3120 to macbook pro OSX?

    If the printer is Wi-Fi capable, you have to get it on your home Network.
    It needs to know the network_name and Wi-Fi password, and these need to be entered directly into the control panel on the Printer.
    Once it has joined your network, it will show up under Add-a-Printer.

  • How many Voice connections can cisco 2821 support?

    Good day.
    I have a cisco 2821 with EVM slot, NME-X slot and two HWIC slots. I have 4 port FXOs on the two HWIC slots. The EM-HDA-8FXS module on the EVM slot can handle 8 FXS connections. Please i would like to know if there is an EVM module that can do FXO connections and also how many voice connections can this router handle in total. Can the EM-HDA-8FXS module handle both FXS and FXO connections?
    Hope someone can help me out. My deadline has already passed.

  • How many max connections opened do you have?

    I've read so many answers to these questions that, i don't really know what is the correct one. So, i would like to know what do you have. Here they are:
    1- How many max connections per torrent do you have set up?
    2- How many max opened connections do you have in mldonkey (or similar)?
    Last edited by dienadel (2007-03-08 08:25:36)

    AFAIK it's arround (total connections):
    - <5 for RTC
    - <100 for slow ADSL
    - <500 for medium ADSL
    - ~1000 for high-speed ADSL (and max on Windows lol) ; went up to over 1500, without positive change.
    I use rtorrent & have a limit of <100 connections per torrent (4 leechers max per torrent so they get something)

  • How many concurrent connections can ACS handle at once?

    Hi Experts,
    Could you please let me know how many concurrent connections ACS can handle at once?
    Is there any limitation on it?
    Our ACS version is 4.0 (1) build 27.
    Thanks in advance for your help and have a nice day!

    It depends on many other factors but as far as I know ACS can handle upto 40 Auth request per second*

  • Connection Pooling: how many active connections?

    Hi, everybody.
    I have a very simple question about connection pooling...
    How many active connections should a database see once a connection pool has been opened?
    I mean, it should see only one connection (the pool itself) at any time, or the number of "logical" active connections in that moment?
    Thanks for any answer.

    This is the wrong forum, I posted again my question in the JDBC Forum...

  • How many concurrent connections that an ACS server version 4.2 latest patch can handle?

    I have about 50 routers and layer-3 switches that autheticate via tacacs+.  The AAA server used to be on a Linux machine running open-source tacacs+ built by me.  I have a perl script that will log into all 50 devices at the same time to collect statistics.  This script is multi-threaded.  Everything is working fine so far.
    I recently out-sourced the AAA function to a 3rd party company, not by my choice.  The 3rd party uses Cisco ACS version 4.2 with the latest patch running on Windows 2003 Enterprise Server with 16GB RAM and quad processors with quad-cores, IBM x3650-M2 hardware. The connectivity between the 3rd party and my company is through a DS-3 connection.  Maximum bandwidth over this DS-3 connection is less than 10Mbps at most.
    I noticed that for the past 3 months I have multiple failures with this perl script due to authentication failure with the ACS server.  If I just run the script again a few routers/switches, there are no issues; however, whenever I started the script to log into 50 devices all at the same time, it will fail.  If I made the configuration on all routers/switches to point back to the old open-source tacacs+ server, the issue goes away.  The minute I switched back to the
    new ACS server, the issue came back.  If I modified the script to hit one device at a time, it works fine.  I think it is the ACS server can not handle a lot
    of AAA requests at the same time.
    Does anyone know how many concurrent connections that an ACS 4.2, with latest patches on Windows 2003 Enterprise Server with lot of memory and CPU power, can handle?  I can't seem to find this anywhere on Cisco website.
    Thanks in advance.

    No, Im not saying ACS cannot cope.
    Concurrency and latency are very different things. ACS CSTacacs can handle many 100s of simple authentications/authorisations per second with users in the internal database. If 1000s of devices all send traffic in the same instant it would take some seconds to work through the backlog of traffic.
    Also, worth considering that a limited number of tasks within ACS (or threads) can actually handle a much greater number of "logins" because they are generally multi-message allowing ACS to keep lots of plates spinning.
    If users are in an external databases the latency (per authentication) can increase depending on where the users are (eg Windows AD) and if bad enough can have a serious effect on the overall authentication rate. At which point customers normally turn to load balancing.
    If your device timeouts are 20 seconds (totally reasonable) I suggest the issue is more likely to be something else... a bug, perhaps specific to v4.2?

  • How many WAN connections (Rj45) supported on ISR G2 router

    As Rick and Reza have both noted, number of routable Ethernet ports varies per ISR G2 model.  Ethernet switch options would allow the most Ethernet ports, but you need to route through them using SVIs.
    However, most ISR G2s often do not have the performance capacity to run their built-in Ethernet ports at full capacity.  Often the add-in Ethernet ports have bandwidth restrictions to/from the port.
    Basically, ISR G2 routers were designed to have a LAN Ethernet connection and some WAN, non-Ethernet connection, of much less bandwidth.
    ISR G2 router performance is also very much impacted by device configuration.

  • How many wifi connections to HH3?

    Hi. I have a HH3 and between myself and my family, we have many devices connected to it via wifi. In total I have:
    4 x Apple TVs
    5 x iPhones
    3 x iPads
    2 x iMacs
    2 x PCs
    1 x Printer
    2 x Sky+ boxes
    (19 devices in total)
    Recently, all of my family have been complaining that their device(s) won't connect to the wifi. I have had a look at their devices, and entering the password (which has always worked in the past) produces a message saying something like "Unable to join BTHub3-****)
    This evening, I turned on one of the Apple TV's that I have not used for a couple of months and saw the following message
    There was a problem connecting to the network.
    The Wi-Fi network you're attempting to join cannot host any more devices. Disconnect other devices and try again. (-3913)
    I suspect this is the same problem that my family has been having but with a more detailed explanation of the error.
    Now contrary to popular belief, this problem is not likely to have anything to do with the fact that most of my products are Apple and so I am not looking for suggestions on switching to Android.  What I want to know is does the HH3 actually have a limit on how many devices can be connected at once and if so, how can I resolve my problem?  I am getting inconcistent feedback from BT support so hopefully I can get a straight answer here.

    If you do a factory reset of the home hub, it should clear out any old entries, and should allow you to re-connect your wireless devices.
    There are some useful help pages here, for BT Broadband customers only, on my personal website.

  • EA6900 - How many wireless users do you have?

    Hey all,
    I have another post researching why my EA6900 keeps shutting down my wifi users while the router itself otherwise seems healthy.  Currently, the support team is wondering if I'm maxing out my wifi connections.  Is there anyone out there who has more than me?  I would imagine that a corporate location should have a big number.
    Currently, I have (at any one time) about ~11 wireless clients:
    3 Kindles (andriod)
    2 Windows Phones
    2 DLink Wifi Cameras
    1 Windows Laptop
    1 Windows Tablet
    1 Wireless Printer
    1 Smart TV (sometimes used for streaming)
    Physical Wired Connections:
    1 PC
    1 Storage Device (networked)
    1 Xbox 360
    1 Xbox One
    No way 10 clients blow out the router, right?  How many do you have?

    16-18 depending on who's home.

  • How many nas connections to router can handle

    I wonder how many NAS Linksys EA6500 in Bridge mode can handle.
    I have got two Linksys EA6500 routers - one bridged with already one WD My Cloud connected.
    I thank you in advance.

    Sorry I thought you were going to use the EA6500 as your NAS.
    Having a separate switch for the NAS's is best if you have a lot of Ethernet LAN data otherwise plugging them straight into the router would be fine.
    Please remember to Kudo those that help you.

  • How make wireless connection with airport express to  Yamaha Clavinova CVP-403 ?

    I would like to wirelessly connect my Yamaha Clavinova CVP-403. I would like to use a D-link DWA 125 and my airport express. Does anyone has any experience on how to do that?

    Hi Henry - you seem to be a very helpful and knowledgeable person and I am wanting to dive in to the depths of wireless working at home and could probably do with your advice. I certainly don’t have as much knowledge as Jaybee and if he’s had problems I am feeling a little apprehensive.
    I know that the first thing I need to do is get an ethernet modem to use with Airport Express as I currently only have a USB modem. I was wondering if you have any recommendations or if I should go straight for the Netgear DSL modem/router (DG834B) that Jaybee ended up with. Although the bit about ‘disabling the Airport Express resp. Extreme routers’ scares me rigid
    I have looked at ‘About this Mac’ and got the following for you – hope it’s helpful.
    OSX 10.3.9
    1.33 HGz PowerPC G4 processor
    Airport Extreme: Worldwide
    Firmware: 400.17(
    Airport admin utility: 4.2 (v420.31)
    My ISP is also Tiscali (UK) - they have said they can only provide modem support on the USB modem they provide so once I switch to an ethernet modem I’ll be on my own. I have checked the Tiscali website and found the following modems, so I would assume (probably unwisely) that they would be compatible with my account...
    Zoom X6 5590 DSL Modem (55907200) 
    D-Link DSL-300T 
    Zoom Hayes ADSL Ethernet (H0-15805) (081580572) 
    Any help is very gratefully received.

  • How is wireless connectivity supposed to work for HP wireless printers?

    Does anyone know of any white papers, or similar, that describe how an HP  wireless printer is supposed to establish connection, 1) for initial setup, 2) for regular use after installation?  Trying to understand the process from experience, mine & others, without access to an analyser doesn't provide definitive answers.  It's a lot easier to solve a problem when you know how it's supposed to work . (and preventing them in the first place)
    Initial setup appears to use the IP address for establishing connection, but for subsequent use there would seem to be a number of ways that fit the behaviour .  Any pointers would be appreciated.

    Thanks TreeFrog. 
    My printer is a P1102w, and the support CD labelled P1100/P1560/P1600 series, so I guess any comment about the P1102w would be applicable to the 1560 & 1600s as well.  But it could also be useful to other printers with varying degrees of relevance.  Thats why I reckon a document discussing principles and ranges of devices they apply to could be useful (eg. "this method of connection was introduced in year x and not applicable printers before then, or something like that " .)    I also know that reading manuals is rare but I've found in the past that all sorts of useful interesting stuff can surface unexpectedly (the unknown unknowns of IT!).
    The specific question I have relates to sending a print after the initial connection has been established and Smart Install has been completed.  Do subsequent connections depend primarily on the IP address, or is some other method of identification used, such as MAC address or device id?
    If the IP address based on the dynamic DHCP request is used then this has implications in the event that the DHCP table on the DHCP service/router is reset, say in the event of a power or device reset.  Where such resets are frequent then it may be worth using an IP address determined some other way, such as a Manual(locked)-DHCP (if supported) or static (providing a static address outside the DHCP range can be found).
    Thanks for your help.
