1. A method of scanning for wireless networks using a wireless integrated circuit package comprising a first radio and a second radio, the method comprising:
providing a first probe request in a first time slot on a first channel using the first radio, wherein the first probe request solicits a first probe response from an access point, wherein the first probe response comprises information for communication between the wireless integrated circuit package and the access point;
receiving the first probe response in a second time slot on the first channel using the second radio, wherein the second time slot is at least partially contemporaneous with the first time slot and begins at or just after a beginning of the first time slot; and
providing a second probe request in a third time slot on a second channel using the first radio.
