Hi, Im wondering if anyone can recommend a decent openwrt compatible outdoor WAP for wireless N that can handle ~100 low bandwidth active clients.
At the moment I'm running YunCore CPE830 x2 but they fall over at around 30 -40 clients each. its not a band width issue as all clients are only communicating VIA MQTT and barely us 5% of the available bandwidth. nor is a cpu issue as it also is extremely low averaging 0.04, 0.02, 0.00 on the CPU monitor.
I think the issue is around the Radio MCU just not being able to handle a high client count and the overheads associated with a high client count.
I use these to automate alot of things in an accommodation / business setting so i need high reliability, and im looking to mesh the network , but I don't want to have to use 4 or 5 AP's becuase of the client count issue, i'd rather 2 or 3 AP's that are not going to die at 30 or 40 clients.
any recommendations and experiences with high client counts would be fantastic.
