Router WNDR3700 max connections

I think I'm about to purchase the router WNDR3700, but I'm missing som data on it:
1. What is the maximum number of concurrent/simultaneous NAT/P2P connections/sessions it can have?
2. What is the maximum number of concurrent VPN passthrough connections?

Anybody that knows these details?

WRONG AREA
MOVING TO 3700 DISCUSSION AREA

VPN Passthrough = one session at at time

less than 100 is ideal but I seen around 200 do work on this 3700. Someone has already posted. if you raise the concurrent connection it will lock up the router so you will know when to quit. 99~300 something you can try

Re: Router WNDR3700 max connections

No , it is my standard setting , never tried more , never has locked up yet . So far this router is best for tors , it divides the bandwith evenly among 4-6 tors at a time . Other routers would have one tor suck all the bandwith leaving almost nothing for the other 5 , plus my top speed used to max out at 4.1-4.3 , now getting 4.9-5.2 Mbps top end .

Re: Router WNDR3700 max connections

I think in another thread someone quoted a limit of something like 4096.

Re: Router WNDR3700 max connections

That’s not particularly high, my router handles 15000 simultaneous connections and even that’s not exceptional.

I’m not convinced that with older Netgear routers the connection limit set in the firmware was the cause of failures, a limit of 100 was often needed to be set externally in the applications running on the LAN, but I suspect this was simply down to the processing power of the routers.

Thanks!

It seems that Netgear is not so good in specifying this type of data. Mostly up to trial and error from users. Anybody that has seen any official data from Netgear?

Agree, even 4096 does not sound so impressing. Which router do you have?

Re: Router WNDR3700 max connections

I have one of these;

http://www.draytek.co.uk/products/vigor2950.html

Which is really a business grade router, but I have heard of home grade routers that offer around 15000 connections or higher, you should not have to pay more for that feature. I suspect that with limited memory capacity if too much is allocated to this, then other features may suffer or not be included.

Re: Router WNDR3700 max connections

every router has it's own max session connection (concurrent connection value) and all are different in value which is limited by the firmware which is hard coded 🙂
