Theoretically up to 253 with the standard IP and subnet setup, but I doubt domestic routers are really powerful enough to manage that many at once.

The maximum amount that can connect to a router is 253 Users

3Com Router allow 64 wireless devices

Belkin Routers allow 32 wireless devices

as default this says up to 50 wireless connections
but note that the more connected then speed becomes slower
