socket connction

    Hi, im having a problem with my Linksys BEFFSR41 router
    (version 4).
    I am hosting a dc hub and I am dropping users all the time.
    I know there is not a problem with my connction or my ips and there is not a problem with my bandwidth (10/10mbit)
    I think there is a socket limit problem, because I get disconnected from 4 - 5 hubs at the same time and my vpn is not working while the dc hub is online.
    Which routers can handle a lot of socket connctions and how many?
    I bought this router for only a month ago, before that I had a D-Link DGL-4300 , Zyxel Prestige 443-w and Linksys WRT54GX. They had the same problem. Do anyone of you have solution how to fix this or have a router tip of what router works good with a dc hub ?

    The hub is only taking less than 3/4ths of 1 megabit of bandwidth, I have 10.
    My line should be able to handle about 4,000 users, but when the hub fills to about 1,700 users it will start to drop 400-500 hundred users at once.
    I have 2 pc's, one with windows xp, and one with windows 2k. the server I am talking about is running win xp.
    The server is connected to the built in switch in the current router, which is then connected to the broadband modem.
    What routers can handle a lot of socket connctions and how many? Can you tell me the numbers?
    The technical spec sheets for routers include many things like speed, etc, but they do not say just how many connections they can handle.
    I would like to know the number of socket connections for some of the routers above.
    Or if you can tell me the manufacturer and model number of some routers that support many simultaneous connections.
    What routers can handle 3000, 4000, or 5000 socket connections? Or what other information do you think could help with this?

    Thats a lot of connections for that router. These aren't commercial routers. Its quite likely you're just overloading the router. If you want to handle something of that level, you may have to goto a commercial grade router.
