1. A method for facilitating interaction in a wireless ad hoc network, comprising:

  • receiving, at an apparatus configured to operate as a station in the wireless ad hoc network, a beacon frame comprising a timing signal of the wireless ad hoc network, an association target beacon transmission time period indication associated with a standard beacon period corresponding to the wireless ad hoc network, and an association diluted beacon period indication corresponding to the wireless ad hoc network being associated with a diluted beacon period, the diluted beacon period having a lower frequency than the standard beacon period;

    synchronizing, by the apparatus, a timing signal function with the received beacon timing signal of the wireless ad hoc network;

    determining, by the apparatus, to operate in the wireless ad hoc network with a diluted beacon period indicated in the received beacon frame; and

    preparing, by the apparatus, to transmit a beacon frame in the wireless ad hoc network according to a time period indicated by a beacon period based on dilution of the received beacon frame after the received beacon frame; and

    isContend with other networked devices in the wireless ad hoc network for access to a wireless communication medium in accordance with the diluted beacon period indication to transmit the beacon frame, the beacon frame including a target beacon transmission time indication and the associated diluted beacon period indication.
