Hi,

I am interested in SoftAP mode in cypress43455 and currently the MAX_STA supported is limited to 16 clients. Looks like this is target memory limitation and would like to disable some other features like STA, P2P, TDLS, IBSS to create space for more clients.  Is is possible to control target features from any of the firmware commands available? Also any suggestion on driver trials to be done will be helpful.

The default value of wl maxassoc will provide the maximum number of clients that is hardcoded in firmware. As per the current firmware version shown below

1.21 RC0.0

wl0: Nov 13 2019 04:39:05 version 7.45.198 (r723338 CY) FWID 01-369a6798

The maximum limit is 8. Currently, there are no plans to increase this limit because of limited memory.

The maximum number of clients to be connected to softAP is given by wl maxassoc. The maximum value of wl maxassoc is hardcoded in the WLAN firmware and cannot be exceeded.

Hi Gaurav,

Thanks for the information. Though in driver BRCMF_MAX_ASSOCLIST is set to 128, it is no where being configured to target. As the MAX clients supported is varying based on different type of clients associated, can we get to know what is the hardcoded value in firmware? This lets us to understand the feasibility. Is there any future plans to increase the number of clients?

Thanks.
