maximum number of clients

  • hello,
    I am making a project, which should connect one Lopy to 7 ESP8266 through Wi-Fi. Lopy is access point and all Esp8266 are clients.
    so far Lopy connects to only any 4 clients among all. how to increase the number of clients
    how to connect rest of the three esp8266 to same one Lopy.

    I am using below line of code in Lopy(Access point) which is related to wifi configuration:

    wlan=WLAN(mode=WLAN.AP, ssid='lopy-wlan-7cd4', auth=(WLAN.WPA2,''), channel=11, antenna=WLAN.EXT_ANT)

    another question what is the maximum number of clients that can connect to Lopy or Wipy in wifi mode.

    please help.

    As you found 4 clients is the maximum number of clients for the LoPy or WiPy in AP mode.

    This is a limit set by the microcontroller core libraries/framework we use (ESP-IDF) so probably not going to increase anytime soon.
