Eight clients is a common limitation for wireless hotspots (this is also the limit for Windows® 10 created hotspots).
Since Linux* drivers for our adapters are open-source, and developed by the Linux* community, our best recommendation in this case will be to engage the Ubuntu Forums, or the iwlwifi support community for assistance. They will be the best source of information and may be able to provide a workaround if one is available.
