Question about 2wire (2701HG-B) Wireless Router
The 2701hg-b Wireless Access Point (WAP) has 4 ethernet connections, that's the physical limit, for that, unless you "cascade" a bridge or another router off of a port.
It also supports wireless. I know of no documented limit as to the number of concurrent wireless connections... there probably is one, but it isn't "published", that I know of.
The "real" limits on the wireless side are "activity" and "channel" conflicts.
The "activity" conflict factor has to do with how much somebody/anybody is using "doing" with your WAP. Sooner or later, you'll see "saturation" of the wireless bandwith.
The "channel" conflict factor usually occurs when there are two (or more) WAPs (or other wireless devices) within "range", that are using the same "wireless channel".
From the "user" perspective, the effects of "conflict" are similar to "saturation", except that you'll likely see more "dropped connections" with "conflict".

Many routers can handle upwards of 30-40 connections without a problem and high quality ones can handle 254 (that's the max for a class C subnet).
