Default Typical Wireless Router Handles how many devices?

can it handle a total of more than 4 devices?

A qualified "yes". Qualified because there will be some limits on total
number of internet connections that can be established, so 10 PCs could be
using a 500 kbps connection if they're all browsing and using e-mail, while
things could go pear shaped (router running out of memory, re-booting, etc)
if they were all being used for P2P... or even if only 2 were, it could
affect the stability of the router.

Say 2 wireless PCs, and 4 wired PCs

I feel sure most of the wireless units claim to be able to handle well over
128 wireless connections (though I doubt it would be much fun, because it
seems difficult to get the 54 Mbps typically suggested, and with having
to re-send packets because of collisions, I'd expect sluggishness to be a
problem at well under a quarter of that number - can someone in a firm
with hot desking and wireless in use get some stats from their IT
people about how many connections are workable).
