    Note: For two APs to be in the same cluster, they do not need to have the same number of radios; however, the supported capabilities of the radios should be same. Clustering APs Only identical models may be clustered together. For example, the DWL-2600AP can only form a cluster with other DWL-2600APs. Viewing and Configuring Cluster Members The Access Points page allows you to start or stop clustering on an AP, view the cluster members, and configure the location and cluster name for a cluster member.
