The maximum number of Wi-Fi clients depends on the Keenetic router model, on the Wi-Fi chip used and is determined by our 'build' of drivers for the chips used for the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands.
For current models, the maximum number of Wi-Fi clients is as follows:
|Model||2,4 GHz range
||5 GHz range|
Voyager Pro (KN-3510)
|256 in total on both ranges|
|114 in total on both ranges|
|Runner 4G (KN-2210)||75||—|
Due to migration to a new Linux kernel and new Wi-Fi drivers from MediaTek, there may be non-critical changes in the numbers given.
The numbers indicated in the table are 'theoretical-lab-limit', i.e., the physical maximum that the chip is in principle capable of connecting to itself in the MAC table. But we don't test routers' performance with such a limiting number of clients; therefore, we cannot guarantee its correct performance in such conditions. We test routers with 40 simultaneously working clients on a single band in our lab.
Keep in mind that so far in Wi-Fi, half-duplex transmission is used for most clients, and the entire environment's maximum speed is essentially shared between clients. In the 2.4 GHz band, which is noisy with other devices, even a small number of active clients per point can already cause serious problems. Whenever possible, use the 5 GHz band and compensate for the lack of coverage and capacity by connecting dual-band extenders operating on different channels to your Keenetic router via cable and creating a Mesh Wi-Fi System.
To serve as many customers as possible on all Keenetic models that have the Airtime Fairness option in their wireless network settings, we recommend keeping it enabled (by default — it is ON in the outbound direction). This allows air time to be split evenly between clients regardless of interference.
