[R6700v3 — Nighthawk AC1750] maximum device connection

Dear all,

 

I am using the R6700v3 — Nighthawk AC1750 router and I have 2 questions for it.

1. How many connections max that the devices can connect to this router?

2. If a device is disconnected to the router, how long the router will release the connection for this device to be able to have room for the new devices?

 

I appreciate the help.

 

Thanks,

Tim

are you wondering about wireless or wired?

   For wireless devices, the claim is 32/radio.

That says "per band", but some newer models have more than one radio per
band.

   Exactly what kind of trouble are you expecting?

 

   I would not expect the wireless-device limit to be related to the
DHCP lease time.  I'd expect the actual connection to be forgotten
pretty quickly after one side disappears, but I know nothing.

   I'd run the experiment.  I'd trust actual behavior over any wisdom
you might find here.

The trouble is I am using this router on the factory and many of phones 100+ are being connected to this router. So I wonder the max connection and lease time.

   Ah.  Sometimes, when looking for a solution, it's helpful to describe
the actual problem.

 

   So far as I know, no Netgear consumer-grade router provides a
supported way for the user to adjust the parameters of its DHCP server.

 

   I don't know if it's the same on all models, but on my D7000[v1], the
DHCP lease time is 86400 seconds (24 hours).

 

   A simple, if inconvenient, work-around would be to restart the router
periodically, or when it gets into trouble.

 

   Another possibility would be to use an independent DHCP server which
does allow the user to adjust its parameters.  Perhaps something like a
Raspberry Pi?
