A method (
) for determining a frequency hopping sequence for a newly-entering network. The method comprises the step of scanning (
) a plurality of frequency channels. For each of the plurality of frequency channels, the scanning step comprises detecting whether a signal (
) exists on the channel and recording information (
) corresponding to each channel on which a signal is detected. Finally, and responsive to the recorded information, the method forms (
) the frequency hopping sequence.
