Wireless G - practical number of clients?
Posted on 2004-09-21
What is the practical number of clients that can be connected to a wireless G network and still have acceptable speeds, in anyone's experience?
I am running 11 machines on a wireless G network. The signal strength is excellent in all parts of the office. However, instead of connecting at 54Mbps, they all connect at 1Mbps, or at least that is what the properties window says. Saving a simple Word document to the server takes 5 minutes, printing to a network printer tends to freeze whatever program you're trying to print to, etc.
Is 11 too many to have on this network? If not, what can the problem be? Are there any setting, adjustments, configurations I can check or try?
