It depends on how the range of DHCP addresses are set up in the router but typical is about 253 per network base (for example ~ would be the connecting devices addresses, the router would be and would be the broadcast IP for that subnet).

If I may add, on a home network, while dozens of computers and other devices may connect to the WiFi router, the performance of a shared Internet connection will quickly degrade as more computers access the Web simultaneously.

some SOHO (small office, home office) routers (which are the most common) actually have a configured device limit (typically 50 or less). this can usually be changed. but it all depends on the make/model of the router
