Claim of US Patent No. 10,433,304

1. A method for wireless communication, the method comprising:dedicating a frequency channel in a frequency band;
determining, by a station, the dedicated frequency channel by decoding, by the station, an information element within a beacon frame;
transmitting, by the station, a probe request frame in the dedicated frequency channel based on the beacon frame;
receiving, by the station, a probe response frame in the dedicated frequency channel,
wherein a separate frequency channel from the dedicated frequency channel is in the frequency band and is allocated for transmitting data frames upon receiving the probe response frame,
wherein the beacon frame in the dedicated frequency channel is transmitted more often than the beacon frame in the separate frequency channel,
wherein the dedicated frequency channel and the separate frequency channel are allocated by decoding, by the station, the information element within the beacon frame, and
wherein the information element indicates the dedicated frequency channel dedicated to the probe request frame and the probe response frame, and indicates the separate frequency channel.
