I'm attempting to understand some basic design rules for enterprise wireless networks, one of them seems to suggest the layer 2 broadcast domain (VLAN) need to be kept small.  However I don't seem to be able to quite find out the reasons why.

I have read broadcast and multicast traffic have an affect, can anyone elaborate on this and explain exactly how this type of traffic affects a wireless vlan and slows it down
