How many routers can be supported within a local network?

How many routers can be supported within a local network?
That depends upon the reach of your network. I have seen and designed networks with 2,000+ routers. So if you can summarize routes nicely you can use that many number of routers. The most important thing is to check how fast or slow does a network converge. That should actually limit the maximum number of routers in a local network.
