A method (

10

) for determining a frequency hopping sequence for a newly-entering network. The method comprises the step of scanning (

16

) a plurality of frequency channels. For each of the plurality of frequency channels, the scanning step comprises detecting whether a signal (

18, 22

) exists on the channel and recording information (

20, 24

) corresponding to each channel on which a signal is detected. Finally, and responsive to the recorded information, the method forms (

30

) the frequency hopping sequence.
