Wireless Access

single vlan or or multiple vlan



Wireless is a contention type of access or a shared media, is it matters if we put all clients in one big subnet or in small multiple subnets.

Re: single vlan or or multiple vlan

It depends how big the subnet.  You can certainly get away with a 255 or 512 user subnet, but it would be best to drop broadcast and multicast at the Virtual AP to improve performance.  Anything larger than that and you should break it up.
