Number of wireless clients in AP mode is very limited #3010
I'm reporting this on Jamesh's advice (see this forum discussion).
Describe the bug
Nginx and php-fpm are optimized so that memory is not a problem. Flooding the web server using ApacheBench shows that memory is not a problem: available memory remains at around 600M at any time, even with 100 concurrent http requests! Swap is never used.
The limitation experienced is uniquely caused by concurrent wifi connections to the AP (hostapd). For that reason, I'm suspecting it's a wifi driver issue.
