A hypothetical question that I am sure someone can answer for me.  How many access points would be recommended for general Internet surfing for 275 simultaneous users on a combination of iPad's and laptops in a single room like a gymnasium?  I know there are lots of variables, but again, I am not looking for an answer for any type of planning, just curious.  We currently have 3825i access points on a couple of C25 controllers as a point of reference.

I would say 5 3825's...

- Average 30 clients per radio
- Average 60 clients per AP x 5 = 300 clients

Less than I thought.  I was thinking 30 per AP instead of per radio.  Thanks.
