Maximum number of clients supported on an AP-215?

Hello all, I am receiving conflicting information and just need some clarification. What is the maximum number of clients that an AP-215 can support?

 

Here is what I think I know:

The maximum number of clients is configured on the SSID profile.

The default setting is 64 and configurable up to 255.

 

Questions:

Since it's on the SSID profile, I took that to 64 clients. But does it mean 64 clients per radio (2.4 and 5)?

 

If I created 5 VAP's and 5 different SSID profiles, I could potentially have 5 x 64 = 320 clients (or 640 clients if the limit is per radio)?

 

Does the chipset have a client limitation?

 

This is all theory...I do not plan to configure this by any means, I just want to understand the settings and not real world throughput.

 

I did see the following links:

255 per radio is the physical limit although that's well above the recommended client capacity.


Thanks,
