Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This question is so broad in scope that the answer is “it depends”. Subnetting really has no effect on LAN performance other than separating broadcast “regions”. Subnetting in a LAN is defined as a VLAN (virtual local area network). See <a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vlan”>Wikipedia</a> for more information on VLANs. Subnetting may put more of a load on your LAN switch or router since it has to decide where to put packets now rather than letting devices on the same LAN talk to each other.

I think you should define what you are looking for with reference to “performance”.
