Hi Experts,

I'm looking for a WAP device to support 20 or so concurrent BYOD connections in a boardroom. The current WAP we use seem to lockup and requires a reset whenever multiple connections are attempted. The current WAP is a consumer grade linksys unit.

Is there a device that is robust enough to handle a large number of connections? or what would be a suitable solution for our needs?

Generally, its only used for checking their mails and occassional browsing  - pretty light usage.

We are not looking for an overkill solution, just something that will replace the current WAP with a solution that can handle larger number of connections.

Thanks in advance!

How old or what model is your current unit? I was going to suggest the device below in the link which should be plenty good for your needs.

Thanks Warlock..
Our current one is an old Linksys WAP54G.. it was already here when I joined the company.
Is there a limit on number of concurrent connections that EA6900 can safely handle? The important requirement is the device needs to serve 20+ concurrent connections reliably..

Both units OLD & new should be able to handle that traffic with NO issues and no lag.  Depending on how long that older unit has been in use and who did what to it before, it may be time to replace it. The link above is a good buy for a fairly cheap price and can handle pretty much what you throw at it.
