That's all we allow actually. For technical reasons, 4 connections from the same IP in the same game is the limit. If a fifth connects, one of the first four will drop.
I used to play with 8 characters in a game at once from home but it required two internet connections to do it. I had 4 on DSL and 4 on Cable.
