All devices connecting to wireless access points should be connecting using 802.11a/g/n. Access points (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. It is not recommended that more than 24 clients associate with the AP because the throughput of the AP is reduced with each client that associates to the AP. Check with your wireless AP manufacturer for recommended number of client connections.
