Re: Firewall Causing Low Throughput

please mention Router type,
Firewall packages are handled by the CPU, so on slower CPU models you might not get wire speed on your firewalled connection.

Re: hAP AC

as an hAP AC will max at about 600MBit thruput over the cpu, it totatlly depends on what your clients are using ...
IF they all use 10MBit streaming, you will be able to handle 60 users without problems
IF your clients use less concurrent bandwidth, you can handle more users ..
