What is the max_connection limit for SoftAP? How to increase it?

Postby sarjan » Sat Mar 12, 2016 6:05 pm

I want to connect more than 10 stations (maybe like 25 stations) to one softAP. Is it possible to do it without having to use mesh?

Here in the changelog it mentions the following
4.ESP8266 soft-AP can connected to 8 stations at most, softap_config.max_connection default is 4
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=481

Where does this limit of 8 stations come from? :? :?

Thanks :)

Hi,

It is due to the limitation of memory. ESP8266 soft-AP can connected to 8 stations at most.

You can set softap_config.max_connection = 8; then call wifi_softap_set_config.

Thanks for your interest in ESP8266 !

Hello, I have some units to try an increased max_connection with but I don't know how to modify the code, I'm willing to try though if you have en example!

ty,

Alexandre

Hi,

Here is an example of softAP configuration http://bbs.espressif.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=227.

You can change it as below, but it will take more memory.

Code: Select all

 softap_config.max_connection = 8;


Thanks for your interest in ESP8266 !
