How many clients?

In my experience with the Orbi routers: after 4 months of use the routers can't connect to the Internet anymore. I'm not using the Orbi's DHCP but my server's. In the DHCP I have made a specific restriction for his ip address. I have made a replication of my old's Linksys router. If I put the old router, it works well again and that is the solution for now... (we don't have support since it only 90-day support) 600$ for 90-days support seems ridiculous. We opt out of Linksys, we went with Netgear. But now I think I regret it. Enough with the rant...


Is there a limitation on the number of clients on the router itself? Since i'm not using his DHCP I don't think it should...


I saw other routers especially for entreprise which they clearly state that under their specifications.

Hello BDTechies


There shouldn't be since you are using it in AP mode and using your own router to handle the DHCP.

Thanks... What I've done is simply a Factory reset and set everything back from scratch. And it works now. I'm still unsure of what caused this and I'm a bit a worried to say the least...

I have over 90 clients on mine, and it was fine, until the 1.11.x release of firmware.

What did that firmware do?
