The maximum number of clients to be connected to softAP is given by wl maxassoc. The maximum value of wl maxassoc is hardcoded in the WLAN firmware and cannot be exceeded.
Thanks for the information. Though in driver BRCMF_MAX_ASSOCLIST is set to 128, it is no where being configured to target. As the MAX clients supported is varying based on different type of clients associated, can we get to know what is the hardcoded value in firmware? This lets us to understand the feasibility. Is there any future plans to increase the number of clients?

The default value of wl maxassoc will provide the maximum number of clients that is hardcoded in firmware. As per the current firmware version shown below
wl0: Nov 13 2019 04:39:05 version 7.45.198 (r723338 CY) FWID 01-369a6798
The maximum limit is 8. Currently, there are no plans to increase this limit because of limited memory.
Thanks for the update.
