What is the amount of users for the R510, R610 and R710?


I would like to know how many users can support the R510, R610 and R710? I know that according to the datasheet each of them support 512 connections, but I'm talking of something real, because I need that the clients have a good access to the Internet, they access to youtube too, and for example an R600 works fine with 75 users but when it has 90 users is really slow the access.

Thanks guys!

Have you heard the expression "It depends."?  Yes, it depends on what type of WLANs you're using,
WebAuth/HotSpot with authentication take more resources than simple WPA2-PSK encryption, and
if your clients are all on 5GHz, when some aren't as close and should use 2.4GHz (band balancing)
you're not efficiently using the air waves.  What type of data and how much is the other question?
You said YouTube so streaming data from the Internet, is a lot more resource intensive than simple
text email applications would send/receive, see what I mean?  I really depends on these type factors.
Do you need 1 more AP to keep under 75 users, and is the price worth client satisfaction? (I suggest
troubleshoot first, but I won't not spin my hat to Sales once in a while...)
