    A general rule of thumb in home networking says that 802.11b and 802.11g WAPs and routers support a range of up to 150 feet (46 m) indoors and 300 feet (92 m) outdoors.

    Another rule of thumb holds that the effective range of 802.11a is approximately one-third that of 802.11b/g.

    Hi,
    well a wirless router can support a maximum of 254 clients at the same time.it mean that 255 ip address are available, usually we have router's ip as 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, so the number of clients would be 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3...up to ...192.168.1.255.
