Learn how to change the maximum number of clients or devices allowed to your TM Streamyx Wifi network. You can configure to set to as many as you want as long as your router and network bandwidth able to support.
Theoretically, if 8 clients (devices) connected to 8Mbps network will get an average of 1Mbps per client. However, if some clients are not using the network, a router can shift the available bandwidth to the clients that need it.
Remember, if it is too many clients, your router can get overheat and might stop working when operating at extreme loads for extended periods.
Note: I’m using the default modem provided by TM which is Innacomm W3400V6 modem.

For my 8Mbps Streamyx, I set it at 8 clients so that if there are 8 devices connected to my Wifi network at the same time, it will be an average of 1Mbps for each device.
The lower the number of clients or device connected to the Wifi network, the higher speed will be for each of the device.
