Multiple computers on wifi

Message 1 of 3
(3,321 Views)

I'm hosting a Fantasy Football on line draft at my house. How many computers will my home Fios wireless router support?  I could potentially have 10 different computers trying to access the internet at the same time.  Is that going to work?

 

thanks

A single access point can easily support 10 wireless connections.   Understand however that they are all sharing the same airspace, so 10 PC's means they each get a slice of the available bandwidth.     Really depends on how much data you're going to be pulling thru the network, but from a pure technical perspective you should be fine.

There are 50 IP's reserved in the firmware for set top boxes on the coax lan, so on a class C subnet that leaves roughly 200 IP addresses to be used, four wired lan ports on the router plus any wireless up to the limit. Ditto what lasagna said re sharing the lan bandwidth
