How many Smart Wi-Fi devices can my router handle?

The maximum device limit will depend on your router’s capabilities and your internet service plan.

Most of the wireless routers and access points state they can support about 250 devices connected at once. However, this doesn’t mean that because you can theoretically connect close to 250 devices on a single access point that you should do it.  You also need to consider that every device connected to your network is likely to decrease the available bandwidth to other devices that are on the same network. The reason is that all these devices will not only be sharing the same wireless network but also will share the same internet connection supplied by your broadband service provider.
