      Hello…

      Answers:

      1. Wireless networking does not pass through dense walls like concrete very well. You’ll have to try it to see what kind of range you can get with your specific walls. The way around this is to add access points that carry the signal around your facility.

      2. A wireless router/access point can theoretically support up to 255 connections (typical). But, in practice, you won’t be able to get anywhere near that many ACTIVE sessions at once. Plan on 20-30 clients, only a few of which are active at any given time.

      Does this answer your question?
