I'm trying to build a wireless infrastructure that allows me to connect as many clients as possible. Ideally I'd like to connect up to 100 clients at the same time. Bandwidth for individual clients is not an issue because the applications doesn't need much. My budget is 100 Euros.
- How many clients can be simultaneously associated with an Access Point?
- Should I use wireless "routers"? Or dedicated wireless access points?
- Should I go with one or two "enterprise-grade" Access Points or a multitude of cheaper consumer-grade devices?
- Would using 3rd party firmware like DD-WRT on inexpensive consumer grade Access Points work?
