Auto-configuration of spectrum use by wireless pre-planned or ad hoc networks

A method of, and a wireless device capable of, dynamically allocating radio spectrum access within a wireless communication system includes a wireless transceiver having at least a physical layer functionality to transmit and receive data across a wireless network. The device extracts measurements of radio spectrum conditions from a least one of a local and a remote wireless transceiver to form an assessment of radio spectrum conditions. The device then integrates the assessment of radio spectrum conditions to form an integrated assessment of radio spectrum conditions between the local and remote wireless transceivers. The device further possesses a means for selecting a preferred set of radio spectrum access parameters for a communications session between the local and remote wireless transceiver.
