    potentially dumb questions (wireless networking)

    is there a limit on how many computers can connect to a wireless router wirelessly?

    most say they are 4 port routers but does that just concern the ethernet cable slots?

    cheers

    That DOES just refer to the wired ports; lots will say that they support up to 50 or even 250-odd connections, and technically they might, but you'd have to be mad to try it - wireless-wise, these are basically hubs, so I'd say realistically 15-20 machines per access point, top whack.
