Does anyone know how many devices a single Cisco aironet 1240 b/g Access Point will support and how to I check the load on existing access points.

I believe the titel says it all "Does anyone know how many devices a single Cisco aironet 1240 b/g Access Point will support and how to I check the load on existing access points."

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, Cisco recommends a maximum of 25 users per access point. For utilization, try the CLI using "show process cpu" and "show mem".

Wirelessmon is pretty good. It also allows you to import a map (floor plan) and then you can do a site survey and it will make a "pretty picture" of your wireless signals around the building/s. It's not free, but only like $30-40. Or you could use netstumbler, I like the signal/noise ratio readout that it provides.
