How many connections can IAP-205 handle?

Hi, I have an office with about 50 folks in it, everyone has 1 computer and 1 phone but on average I have about 50-75 connections on wifi at any given time.


I have an old Cisco Aironet 1142NAK9, it has been working great for about 5 years without any problems at all. The problem is it is old and doesnt support the latest protocols and is tough for someone that is not an expert to configure.


I read up on your Aruba IAP-205 and though it would be easy to configure and handle this load.


It was very easy to configure (once it came up, I didnt realize it would take 30+ minutes to boot the first time), but it cant seem to handle the load, once I get 40+ connections going (many on VPN) it seems to drop connections constantly.


Are there any settings/tunings I can try before I send this thing back?
