This one is simply no.

As no one I know carries their own network to an airport then it's a simple no that you would connect an Airport's network to your own network.

Maybe you meant to ask another question but as asked, the answer is no.

I'm trying to find out is how many devices are connected at one time at my airport, that's possible?

That's a different question.

Sorry but as we are using English, that's different from "How do I know how is connected to my network?" which I had to guess you were at an Airport and not that you were asking "How many things are connected to my Apple Airport?"

You are also not asking how many possible devices can be connected over WiFi to an Apple AirPort which is yet another question.

So with that out of the way, let's get Apple's support on the updated question.
You use the Apple AirPort Utilty as noted at many Apple support articles. Here's just one.

connected to your Apple Airport Base Station by looking at the DHCP page via the Apple Airport Utility app.
