Does that emulate 64 STAs contenting for the wireless channel, too? If
not, be ready for surprises when actually deploying the network..
Testing the capability of the AP to handle some number of STAs is one
thing, but there may well be lot of other issues when you actually start
adding more STAs that are competing for the channel access..
