Hello,

we are an home automation company and we are using the BCM4354/CYW4354 (integrated into the nVidia Jetson TX2 SOM) in AP mode. Our goal is to communicate with smart objects inside the house. We are using hostapd to create the software AP.

We noticed that no more than 15 devices can be connected simultaneously to the AP, that strongly limits the capacity of our system.

It seems that the problem is due to the firmware of the device (we are using the bcmdhd driver). Do you know if it is possible to increase the maximum number of stations connected to the AP?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

Could you tell me your expectation for the number of devices that you want to connect using BCM4354 as AP.? Also could you tell the module name?

Regards,

Vinayak

Hello,

thanks for your prompt response. Allowing 40 devices to be simultaneously connected to the AP (BCM4354) would fit our needs. Unfortunately I do not have additional details regading the module name. However, the module is shipped with the Nvidia TX2 SOM.

Thanks again for your help.
