    We have a morale network where I work and have WRT54G router with a couple
    of access points attached to it. At peek use we have about 60 people
    connected to it and the wireless bogs down. I was told that Routers can only
    handle a small handfull of wireless connections.

    So my question is are connections through the wireless access points
    considered wireless to the router. Or wired since the access points are
    wired to the router.

    Also can we attach a switch to the router. Then attach access points to the
    switch, could this help? Thanks

    Have you set up these access point as repeaters or for roaming or ?

    60 concurrent wireless connections is far more than a residential
    grade router like the entry level WRT54G can handle.

    You should repost in the wireless networking newsgroup as this group
    is for the support of the (now discontinued) Microsoft branded
    networking hardware.
