Hello Aditya,


There are quite a lot of papers you can find on this topic.

In theory DNS-SD should scale well with mDNS over ethernet. 802.11 is a
complete different thing and strongly dependent on the AP/router
hardware and configuration e.g. node to node communication might be
disabled for security reasons.

Good luck with your research,
