One question that always remains in the mind of Belkin router user is ‘How many devices does my Belkin router support in a single go’ because they believe that connecting too many devices or far beyond the limit may lead to malfunctioning of the device or the bandwidth may not be equally divided. Let’s dive into this topic, we will discuss it in details.
If you have recently bought a new Belkin router and want to know how many devices can be connected to the router at a time, then keep reading the content. Belkin is a unique device with marvelous and splendid features. In most of the routers, there is a restriction on a number of devices you can add at a time to the internet but in Belkin router, you can accommodate as many devices you want at a time. It has been confirmed even by the router experts who are already testing it.
At the same time, there is a view from experts that if we keep on adding the devices, the quality of the router, as well as the internet connection, get degraded. All the characteristics of the device are determined by the speed and inbuilt RAM of the Belkin router. It’s all about receiving the best performance from the router rather than considering a number of devices. Check different parameters like VPN, QoS and Access control whether these are enabled on the router or not.
Another thing to be taken into account is the amount of traffic engaged by the router. The congestion is proportional to the traffic. If the traffic increases the congestion also and vice versa is also true. This is why the manufacturers don’t mention the capability of your router that how many devices a router can handle at a time.
Which is the best way to get information about it?
The best option is to connect only a limited number of devices to the router or connect to those devices which are extremely important like your smartphone and laptop. This will not affect the performance of the router. If you are still having any problem, you can go to ‘Setup Belkin’ page from the home page. Here, you will find some links related to the problem. Identify the problem and click on the appropriate link.
Note: Before connecting any device to the router, your Belkin router must be configured on the home network. If you are not set up the router on the network, then first configure it by connecting the router to the computer and to the modem. You will then find SSID and password of your router on smart devices.
