The LocoNet Wireless Interface (LNWI) is limited to four connections.

Unfortunately, it does not release a connection after a period of inactivity by that device. The only way to release the connection so another wireless throttle can be added to the network is by power cycling the LNWI.

If there are only four wireless devices which connect to the LNWI, this limitation is not an issue. When visiting operators use their devices as a wireless throttles, it may not connect, or the connection will remain until the LNWI is powered down.
