#89909 Hello

Currently i using a dedicated linux based Access Point to connect my ESP's but facing whit an issue. There is a hardware limitation I cannot able to connect more than 8 ESP8266. I wonder how others connect there devices?
I would like to connect around 50 ESP. Bandwidth is not a requirement.

Thank you

#89917 I use re-purposed standard routers re-flashed with Advanced Tomato firmware which is very stable, has lots of advanced features, and works well with large numbers of connections.

I have used this on Netgear routers and currently have it deployed on a Linksys model.
