Oh, did I make a mistake? Your question fits an ongoing topic.

If this is Your first post go back and readi the first posts telling "How to use forum" etc. Your question lacks everything needed to answer.

I really need to connect more than 8 clients to an esp station. what are my options?

esp? Not my department.

I asking anybody. I dont want to use NRF24 i prefer wifi. i dont wanna have to make a router out of a Raspberry Pi. bluetooth probably cant handle what im trying to do. not sure what to do

its looking like a mesh network might be a solution

do the clients need to be connected permanently? could they connect, communicate then disconnect? or use UDP datagrams
