    How many wireless Mac's can use an Airport Extreme Base Station at the same time? :confused:

    (In college we had 22 Power Mac G5's in one room all using a single Airport Extreme Base Station.)

    50 for AEBS and TC; 10 for AirEx.

    I want to say it was actually more... like 150 ... for the 802.11g AEBS, but I can't find a reference. And I've never gotten 149 friends to come over and try it. :eek:

    Thanks for the quick reply. I did try to find the info on the Apple site, but didn't have any luck .... Dohhh
    A friend of mine had said 7 and I told him about college with the 22 G5's running off a single extreme but he insisted he was right. Thanks again.
