Abstract
Embodiments in accordance with the invention provide a state-based channel section method to improve the rate of successful transmissions for multi-channel wireless network. Channels are monitored for performance, and, based upon performance, are placed in channel state vectors having increasing levels of desirability. The higher the state vector in which a channel is placed, the more desirable the channel is considered for selection. The channel in the highest state vector is considered for selection first. A channel not in the highest desirable state vector is eligible for selection when a channel is unavailable from higher desirable state vectors. Channels not in the highest desirable state vector, are monitored for improvement to move into higher desirable state vectors as they improve.
