Re: hmm

I just purchased an ASUS Dark Knight WiFi router.

»www.smallnetbuilder.com/wireless···&start=2

Based on the link's benchmark results, it was able to successfully route ~800Mbps. I cannot tell from the performance review how many clients generated the bandwidth (it's not clear) but they claimed it maxed out their test bench by successfully handling 34,925 simultaneous connections.

Even though this router is more expensive than most, it's still just a consumer device. In that context, it seems fishy that a consumer device could easily a 100/100 connection when your experience suggests something different.

There is a difference from 2 machines hammering a router then 50 all at once while expecting the router to not fall to its knees.

Also add vpn, firewalling, and filtering some of those connections. A home router rarely has to do that for that many connections.
