Assuming a perfect world scenario here for a second where everything is best practise and setup correctly.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how many wireless laptops an ap-105 could theoretically handle at the same time? This assumes the laptops are 802.11n and logging onto a windows domain.
Any help appreciated.
Lets start with the basic:
The maximum number of users supported is 255, however in a best practices designed wireless LAN there will be multiple APs in a given environment to provide coverage and capacity.
now please let me explain a bit:
If your clients supporting 802.11n (2.4Ghz+5Ghz) -and you deploying AP-105 ,You can use band steering - and choose to balance bands.
You question got a lot of variables:
My base role of amount of client per AP is first depends on the clients device/system and then on the application/data/services/ssid/auth types - That your clients would like to run.
We as a thumb rule - don't like to service more than 25-35 users top on each radio module (70 users at the top.Maximum if you really must .It will fit for - lan/wan basic services with bandwidth contract and airtime fairness.If needed :) in 1 AP105 | 35 on 2.4Ghz and 35 on 5Ghz)
*You should also remember that not all the clients will have good SNR and LOS to your specific AP.
*Always make sure to use 10/100/1000 eth ports to your AP-105 (because your client traffic may need more than 10/100 connectivity) *
*you can limit the number of client on each ap - by default it's 64,we set it on 25-35.*
:robothappy: READ THE FOLLOWING POST - HERE IN AIRHEADS - IT WILL GIVE YOU A LOT OF INFO - REGARDING YOUR QUESTION:
Also you have to take in mind if you got voice ip phones in there... then it would be less than 30... maybe 20 per band...
If you using high intensive BW app on your network you might try with 20-25 or less than 20 it depends... it alwways depends on your network... But in general you can fallow what kdis98 just said.
Hey thanks for the replies both!
I am responsible for our wireless deployments, but I want to get them right. We already have some deployments out there in some of the sites we support and one or two have performance issues.
I am getting used to the Aruba terminology and how stuff works, but it is when things like dense deployments and co-channel interference are mentioned it starts to get confusing. I do read the VRD documents, but I find that they leave me asking more questions than they answer.
You can always ask what confuse you, we will try to help you, if i dont know, or also the other fellows.. there are also Aruba Employees answering here! this is what make this place such a great one :)

Nobody really touches that. There are very few reasons to modify it.
