You aren't really limited, but the more devices means more sharing bandwith, which slows everybody down.

There have been some reports of the 3700 ignoring netmasks larger than 24-bit. So chances are the practical limit is 254 hosts.

Then again, if you need that many or more and you're using a Netgear WNDR3700, well, umm...yeah...

most wireless router from netgear is about 25 wifi devices but you will simply reduce the throughput and also possible hardware on the router may pushing to the limits.

for handful wifi device should be an issue
