can any one no how many users can connect to one single 1142n access points at the time. the data sheet on this product does not tells that. there was none more document but it was talking about the 1242 access points
1142 is a 32MB flash AP..
So it will be..
The maximum number of client associations that the access points can support is dependent upon the following factors:
•The maximum number of client associations differs for lightweight and Autonmous IOS access points.
•There may be a limit per radio, and an overall limit per AP.
•AP hardware (the 16-MB APs have a lower limit than the 32-MB and higher APs).
Per AP Limits
•For 16-MB APs, the limit is 128 clients per AP. This is applicable to 1100 and 1200 series APs.
•For 32-MB and higher APs, there is no per-AP limit.
•For all IOS APs, the limit is 200 associations per radio
•For all 1000 and 1500 series APs, which are not supported beyond the 4.2 release, the limit is 250 associations per radio.
Thus, with 32-MB and higher lightweight IOS APs, with two radios, up to 200+200=400 associations are supported.
Practically, the limit is around 80 to 127 clients per AP. This varies depending on the following factors:
•AP model (whether it is 16 MB or 32 MB or higher).
•Hardware configuration (two radios use more memory than one).
•Enabled features (WDS functionality in particular).
The practical per-radio limit is about 200 associations. One will likely hit the per-AP limit first.

What is important to remember is that WiFi is a half duplex medium and it uses CSMA-CA to manage itself. Think of wireless access points as HUBs. Only one device can talk at a time. So although you maybe able to get 200+ devices per ap you would surly not want to do so as your connect would come to a craw.
can any one no how many users can connect to one single 1142n access points at the time.
Depends on what traffic we are talking about.
If you are talking about, say, sending/receiving emails or web browsing then about 25 clients per AP. But if you are talking about video streaming then the number probably is around 3 and no greater than 4 per AP.
