Radio1 and Radio2 settings - Max Clients

(MSM 422, 430, 460, APs...)


Just wondering what others are typically using for the Max Clients settings for each radio under Controller-> Controlled APs (either here) -> Default Group (or here).


By default HP puts this at 255 for both the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz radio.  I've started to use a Max Client setting for 50 for each radio lately because I've seen instances where 70-95 clients will try to connect in on a single radio and throughput just tanks obviously with so many client connections (especially since they're Mac based and doing tons of mDNS multicast Bonjour stuff...)
