    What is the definition of static user? What network environment or topology you would like to implement? I find the below information on Zyxel User Guide of page 1126 but not sure if it can help you. https://download.zyxel.com/USG_FLEX_500/user_guide/USG FLEX 500_V5.10_Ed1.pdf



  • one of our client use usg flex500 and they want to create users for all student so what is the solution for that?
  • they are using a Mikrotik router and creating 650 wifi user account in mikrotik  so we are trying to replace that router with flex 500. so can we create 650 wifi user account in flex500?

    As far as the table reports, not on the device. Maybe an external authentication server is capable.

    Currently, the default maximum concurrent login user quantity of USG Flex500 is lower than 650.
    In your situation, we suggest you can upgrade equipment to ATP700 or ATP800 which supports the default maximum concurrent login user quantity is 800.

    @Zyxel_Jeff can we use AD users for wifi authentication? all 650 users are not connected at the same time.

    Hi @Suman_Koirala

    When the AD user login Zyxel equipment, since the device will still do some manipulations on those accounts, it will also be counted to login user, too. Therefore, it is suggested to deploy with ATP700 or ATP800 instead of Flex500. Those two models will be more sufficient to meet your requirement.
