Title: NETWORK DISCOVERY METHOD AND DEVICE IN HYBRID HOME NETWORK, BASE STATION AND CONTROL BASE STATION
Abstract:
Disclosed are a network discovery method and device in a hybrid home network, a base station and a control base station, which belong to the technical field of communications. The method comprises: a station point initiating a network discovery process according to a target network mark number; when the station point does not access the target network corresponding to the target network mark number within a first preset length of time and other non-associated station points having the same target network as the station point have not been found, then switching a first port which is currently used for sending to a second port; sending a new station point report message to a control station point of the target network via the port, so that the control station point controls an associated station point in the network thereof to send a discovery beacon, thereby enabling the station point to discover the target network according to the discovery beacon. In the present invention, by correctly selecting a target network mark number, and by awakening already associated station points which are in a sleep state in advance and arranging same to discover a beacon, the network discovery process is accelerated.
