Abstract: Due to tremendous increase in use of W efficient use of available frequency spectrum has been a challenging issue. Such WIFI which are managed by non network specialists are called Uncoordinated WLANS. performance of Uncoordinated WLANs can be greatly improved by efficient channel assignment. In this paper, we describe the various channel assignment schemes used in Uncoordinated WLANs. After describing each scheme we qualitative comparison of the schemes based on complexity, scalability and execution behaviors. The survey various research issues open for further study.
Keywords: Channel Assignment. Co-Channel interference, Uncoordinated WLANS.
