Just wanted to know what is the max number of concurrent user of AP 225? If the backbone to internet gateway is using UTP (1Gb) and with internet subscribe of 5mb. I saw in the product sheet stated 200+ users, how do they calculate this amount? is there any formula specific for Aruba ?

It's not quite as straightforward as that. See this thread...
The raw answer is it's 255 per radio, but that will never be practical in real operation. You'll hit other tipping points first.
Based on what you've said, I'd look at it as follows.
First bottleneck is the 5Mb. So, 1-2Mb per user is "workable" for "normal light" internet use (if that's what your use case is). So, that suggests about 3 users maximum running sustained traffic. In IP terms, that's not "real" due to "burst" nature. Opinions vary on the next bit, but let's say you assume a burst ratio of 10:1. That means 30 users is fine. But then, what sort of users are they? Business? Students? Culture matters.
As I say, it's not straightforward.

<The raw answer is it's 255 per radio, but that will never be practical in real operation. You'll hit other tipping points first.>
As u stated as above , if i keep the default setting of max associate value as 64,
Is that possible to happen that the hit of tipping point even the users haven't reached up to 64 ? ( eg: AP only allow connection up 30 users connections?)
What may cause that happening?
