WLAN for more than 200 clients (little bandwidth)
Posted on 2013-06-22
for an event we have to build a wlan (internet-access) for 200-300 wlan clients. Those clients need not much bandwidth, because they are only smartphones and notebooks checking mails or something like this. It is a big room with no walls beetween and the clients are not moving. So roaming isn´t needed.
Is it possible to mount 4 accesspoints (e.g. draytek ap-800), one in each corner and give them the same SSID. All APs are conected over cable to the same router (DHCP provided by this router). So in worst case, every client would connect to the lets say to the first AP. Is it possible to connecct 300 clients over one AP.
I know that in this case all those clients share the speed of this AP. But as i said they are only checking mails (and not all at the exactly same time).
Or do you know a better way of making this ?
It s only for 1-2 days, so we can´t buy equipment for thousends of euros...
thanks in advance
