    Hello all! If I have a 4-port Wireless Switch, and all 4 ports are wired up to machines, how many Wireless connections can be accomodated?

    I haven't purchased yet, but I was looking at Linksys series of Broadband devices.

    Thanks in advance for any answers!!

    The wireless-side is seperate from the physical port-side. Even though the 4 ports are filled, you can have more wireless connections. I don't know the limit on the wireless connections but you won't hit it in your house. Just remember that the wireless connections all share the same 11M or 55M bandwidth. That isn't split like it is with the physicall ports. This probably won't be an issue if you only have a few wireless connections sharing the internet.

    It's something like 250 connections but all shared on the 11 or 54 MBps bandwidth like Jesse said.
