Abstract

A method for configuring a wireless data packet network comprising a control node and multiple individual nodes includes the following steps: organizing the network into multiple bands Bi each band including individual nodes located i hops away from the control node; assigning a logical address to each individual node. A routing logical address is added to every data packet and each individual node compares its own logical address to the routing address of a received packet. In dependence on the result of the comparison, the packet is discarded, re-transmitted or processed in the node. The network is preferably a packet-hopping wireless network in which data packets are transferred from node to node over a common RF channel.
