In this paper it is analyzed the topology of Wireless Community Network (WCN). WCN have emerged in recent years organized and deployed by the cooperation of its own customers. WCN keep parallelisms with the construction of the Internet, and seems logical to look for common characteristics among them. More specifically, it is investigated whether there are topology patters of, and to what extend they share the power-law properties that have been found to obey many topology parameters of the Internet. The paper also proposes a topology generator algorithm that it is able to reproduce specific graph properties that have been obtained for
