Title: METHOD AND STATION FOR FINDING ACCESS POINT, AND ACCESS POINT
Abstract:
Provided are a method and station for finding an access point, and an access point. The method includes: a station sending a detection request message to an access point, the detection request message carrying a filtration condition, the filtration condition including transmission quality-of-service demand information, and the filtration condition being used for judging whether the access point satisfies the filtration condition; and when the access point satisfies the filtration condition, the station receiving a detection response message sent by the access point. Because an STA informs QoS demand information before accessing a wireless network, an AP sends a detection response message only when the QoS demand information is satisfied. Thus, WiFi networks provided to users are all valid networks, so that the problem of further finding other valid networks does not arise from incapability of satisfying the demand after the STA accesses the network, thus reducing the time delay of connection of the STAs to the valid WiFi network, improve the speed of connecting the STAs to the valid network, and realize rapid connection between the STAs and the AP.
