    Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 - Hostapd limited to 8 connections


      Hello World,


      configuring the WLAN card to act as a wireless hotspot under Ubuntu 16.04 using hostapd.

      I face a limitation with the maximum number of connected clients, the number of clients that I get on the Intel card is max. 8.

      With the same configurations a USB Realtek dongle is able to host 50 connections.


      Looks like a limitation on the WiFi card. Is there an option to overcome this limitation by firmware\software?

      I do not have the option to change the card as the work is done for a 300 unit project. There is no option to use external equipment due to certification issues.


      Thank you
