Sure, but the 25 computers will get no more bandwidth than the original 5 connections did.  In other words, if all 25 computers are using the internet simultaneously, each one will get 20 percent of what computers on the original setup did.  Over a 802.11B or 802.11G network, this will probably be unacceptably slow.

That would depend on the device in question. Some are nobbled to only support limited users.

There are several issues here.

The bandwidth/performance issues are not related to how many connections there are but how many connections are simultaneously active.

Another issue relates to the non-internet wireless connections.  They are likely to put more of a load on the WiFi than internet connections.  That is, if someone is connected to WiFi for reasons other than the internet, they are likely accessing files that they expect to be served up quickly.

More details about who is connecting and for what reason would help a lot here.

The simple answer is "yes, it can feed 25 computers".  The real question is whether or not the performance will be acceptable.  Without knowing what these 25 computers will be doing, the answer to the performance question is too difficult.

You can do this. Performance will suck big time.

Can you get a proper internet source with enough bandwidth?
