Maximum station connections in soft AP.

Postby carbureter » Fri Sep 25, 2015 3:31 pm

I have a question about the maximum station connections in soft AP.
The document shows that, there is a limit of maximum sta connections to a soft AP which is only 4.
Is there any way we can allow more sta connections? we really need more sta connections in our product, maybe 10 sta connections.
can we realize this by modifing the sdk files?
many thanks.

Hi,

Maybe you could try our mesh in esp_iot_sdk_v1.4.0.

Download documentation about mesh.

Hi,

The maximum station connections in softAP is 4, but mesh support multi-hops communication,
So, one mesh supports up to 83 nodes. I think it is enough for you.

We have released mesh demo on github, please clone current code:
https://github.com/espressif/ESP8266_MESH_DEMO
And we released the mesh API document on github:
https://github.com/espressif/ESP8266_ME ... r/document

I'm R&D of esp-mesh, so any problem about it, please feel free to sent mail to me (xiaoyuezhen@espressif.com), i'll reply you as soon as possible.
