It just means you can only connect 1 wired PC you can do quite a few wireless.

I should know the answer but is there a limit to how many wireless devices you can connect to a router ?

It's ok to have as many as a subnet can handle I think (unless set by the router)...

So that would be up to 254.

Yes one wired device and as many wireless devices as you like...within reason and
assuming the subnet is set correctly.

Does depend on the router, and as browni points out it will not be more than 254, but generally 'more than enough' is the answer. Can't imagine how bad it would be to share a basic broadband connection across 254 active users mind!

Also, if at some point in the future you find that one port is not enough then you can buy a hub & plug that in to the router, then plug your PCs & Laptops etc in to the hub - there's no extra configuration required for a hub (and hubs are cheaper than routers!)
