Abstract--Transmission power plays a crucial role in the design
and performance of wireless networks. The issue is therefore
complex since an increase in transmission power implies that
a high quality signal is received at the receiver and hence an
increase in channel capacity. Conversely, due to the shared nature
of the wireless medium an increase in transmission power also
implies high interference in the surrounding region and hence a
quadratic reduction in the capacity of wireless networks. Recent
literatures indicate that employing multiple channels can mitigate
the negative effects of wireless interference and thus greatly
