This paper discusses the basic algorithms and methods that determine the number and the location's coordinates corresponding to the access points, which form the adaptive wireless local area networks coverage. A comparative analysis was completed in order to assess the effectiveness of forming coverage methods, based on the optimum generalized criterion, which includes the criteria of quality of service, cost and energy efficiency. A number of recommendations are suggested regarding the selection of a method of forming coverage, which depend on the subscribers’ placement scenarios in the wireless local area networks.
