I use the captive portal with Pass-Through MAC property to make clients access the internet.
when the table has 3000 MAC address or less , the internet is very good and the performance of the server is very good.
when the number goes over 3000 gradually then the situation become bad , when it reach 7000 then it will be very bad.
the CPU load is normal , and the Memory load is normal also.
