Limit max of users connected to an AP

Hi,

I have around 10 Cisco AIR-AP1042N-E-K9 that are already attached to my WLC 2504.

My first question is: the way I can check how many clients/users are connected to one of the 10 AP

My second question is: Is there a limit max of users per AP. I've read on some forum that for design you have to count 30users per AP. But I want to confirm for my version of AP above is there any limit max of users per AP to get an optimal performance in term of speed rate?

Thanks

Hi,

Hi,

Go to WLAN > SSID Name > Advanced tab.

There is a box on the left-hand corner to limit the amount of Maximum Allowed Clients Per AP Radio. **** By default it is set to 200.

My first question is: the way I can check how many clients/users are connected to one of the 10 AP:

If you are using the latest SW version on WLC then you cna check by going to Wireless > All APs, on this page you can see the number of clinets to each AP.

My second question is: Is there a limit max of users per AP. I've read on some forum that for design you have to count 30users per AP. But I want to confirm for my version of AP above is there any limit max of users per AP to get an optimal performance in term of speed rate?

Rule of thumb is 25 but if its just web and email traffic you can have more.

Regards

Also for high density setups

Also for high density setups check out this document:

One of the most important parts is to disable low Data Rates for greatly improved performance (extremely important if you have many SSIDs configured).
