I have not read the manual for your device, but you can vary the number of people by setting up a account for each and issuing passwords.
There is one thing people don't realize.
You can plug another router into the first.
When I got a new service recently, U-Verse. The installer ran a new cable from outside to where my computer sat. Then for expediency I guess, he just plugged the old wireless Trendnet router which had gone into a modem on the old DSL line into the wireless U-Verse box. This was quick because no passwords had to be put into the devices that were on the old service.
Later, after realizing what he had done, I pulled the old wireless Trendnet router out of the wireless 2Wire Router, and changed the passwords on the connected devices. Likewise I moved the one long Ethernet cable that had been in the old router over to the new router.
What I don't know is how many addresses will the first router handle and how it handles addresses from the second router, or is that idea not applicable.
