|how many computers you can connect via wireless to an access point depends on the hardware manufacturer. It is a shame that this information doesn't get published. Only one way to find out is to configure all of the pcs for wireless, and then have all of them access the internet at the same time. |
There are 11 channels that internal aps support, but this is used to avoid cross talk when you have two or more working in the same network. example: setup ap1 using channel 1, setup ap2 using channel 6, etc... this is done in case their range overlaps with one another.
Connecting the pcs via wire to the adsl modem will only prove that the dsl modem can recognize all of the pcs, it won't prove that it will be able to handle all of them using wireless.
If you can let us know which wireless adsl modem you are looking at, we might be able to find the answer published somewhere.
Hope this info helps
