There is support for the RAX80, including a manual, at the end of this link:


>>>RAX80 | Product | Support | NETGEAR<<<


Check the data sheet. But most of these things – such as the number of wifi clients, if that is what you mean – are generic. So a wider web search may be useful.


How many "maximum user" do you have in mind?

The specifications available (Data Sheet, Netgear Web Tech Specs) for the RAX80 and the RAX120 are by far not sufficient. The max number of concurrent clients supported (by band/radio) isn't documented for example. Afraid, it's not a "user" limitation - as there are no users and  user authentication in place.

In case the Wi-Fi 6 devices follow the common 32 per radio (this is what a generic search might show up), it would be rather disappointing and discouraging for this new technology. 


As well, there is no indication of the size of the NAT table which does indicate the available maximum concurrent connections/sessions over the NAT router.


@ChristineT @Christian_R  wake up the product managers and ask them to hurry up with better data - don't know how many times more we have to ask for these very basics.
