Distributed power control in wireless networks faces challenges related to its stability. When perfect information of channel states and transmitting agents are available, previous work has shown that the stability conditions can be known. When there is uncertainty over the parameter space, stability is not well understood. In this work, we study the impact of parameter uncertainty and network structure on the stability and scalability of a well known distributed power control, namely the Foschini-Miljanic algorithm. More specifically, we derive probabilistic conditions with respect to the parameters of the channel distributions for which the system is stable. Furthermore, we study the effects of these parameters for different node distribution on the plane. Numerical examples validate our theoretical results.
