Model: Archer MR600  
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 1.1.0 0.9.1 v0001.0 Build 220727 Rel.74013n

We recently purchased a TP-Link Archer MR600 as a 3G/4G Modem & Router.

 

According to its product description and package, it should allow up-to 64 simulataneous devices connected at the same time.

 

However after 32 devices you can not add any further device - WiFi connection gets rejected:

 

How can we remove that limitation?

  @Sunshine ok so we had disabled 5Ghz an were receiving that issue - e.g. on iPhone or Android it would show "Wifi at max capacity" or similar.

 

When enabling dual 2.4/5Ghz the problem went away, we were able to connect more than 32, most being on 5Ghz:

 

 

Weirdly, with only 2.4Ghz, connecting was very unstable. E.g. windows laptops would not see internet, even though quickly connected to Wifi, after some time.

 

Upstream and location has not changed between both situations.

Hi, may I know if the existing 32 clients are all connected to one band WiFi? or a mix of 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi?

Thanks a lot for the update, the max 64 WiFi clients are for 2.4G and 5G WiFi in total, max 32 WiFi clients for each band.

Usually the 2.4G WiFi might have too much interference, thus it is recommended to enable both bands. You could also try to change the 2.4G WiFi channel to less-crowded channel to see if it would be better.
