The adaptive management of heterogeneous wireless networks is crucial to the emerging pervasive computing paradigm. A lot of research has been carried out for the management of wireless multiaccess systems. However, little research considers a hybrid wireless environment in which the networking resources include both infrastructured backbone and dynamic ad hoc infrastructureless connectivity. This paper proposes an architecture for the adaptive connectivity management of hybrid wireless networking resources that is available to user's mobile device. Channel is introduced to wrap hybrid networking resources. The adaptations include to choose the best connection for channel creation, and to perform channel connection switching when network situation is changes. Detailed design is described in the paper
