You need an enterprise class router to handle that many users. DSL will also be useless for this unless you have a very large bandwidth pipe for it.

Do a web search for "enterprise router", you will probably need to spend close to $1,000 or more to get one that will work with 200 users. You'll need to contact the vendors to find out exactly how many users the various models were made to support. The home routers you will see all over the place are not made for more than 10 connections or so.

Thanks for the fast reply

ok then i will seperate the connection by 50 units thru ip address connected to a switch. It means 1 dsl connection one modem one router to a 50 computer. download is block only online game can be access and simple surfing, can a home router handle this?

They just can't handle that many connections reliably, even 50 will be bad. They don't have that much memory to handle the load.

Check the model of the router you want to get, it will tell you what the limits are. You may need to contact the company for that info directly if it's not listed.
