Dont know how you would simualte a test, sorry.

The only way I could think is two just try connecting as many devices to just one access point.

Painful I know.

Somewhere in the back of my mind , AP's used to be limited to 10 or 20 connections. But newer kit now accepts 255 devices.

Thisi should be in the manufactureres specifications.

The documentation or specifications for the Wifi router should tell you what it is designed to handle.  Older units handled as little as 8 or 16 simultaneous connections which isn't much when you realize that a browser might open up to 4 connections to retrieve data on a page.  Or might have more than 1 page open.

Here are the results from someone else: http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/lanwan/router-charts/bar/77-max-simul-conn  Maybe you can find a test method there or from them.
