do you calculate the number of users the router can handle by the Mbps wireless speed and coverage ????

Hi joswoody,

Yes, we do calculate it that way,
but there are some generic things to know:
you can choose between coverage or speed, but not both.

These days you have two choices, 802.11N and 802.11G

N is the newer one, can give you theoretical throughput of 150Mbps and 300 with channel bonding.
G is the older one which can give you a theoretical throughput of 54Mbps.

I say theoretical, cuz there are a lot of factors like TCP overhead, interference, range of the client device, etc!

So take for example, if you take a 802.11N Router, you can divide 150MBPS/15 = So that is 10Mbps Max (you can take about 9, taking TCP overhead into consideration), Per Device. Moreover the router has to deal with all those radios fighting for that one channel
So if you are just sharing an internet connection, which depending on your plan can range from 2 Mbps to 15 (residential),
it should suffice.

Generally speaking, newer routers can give you good performance with 12-15 clients.

Check out the new linksys E1200 its about $60 new and $30 for refurbished
Hope this helps man.
