Can I add new radios to an existing AP? Can an SU become and AP and vice versa?

All radios with exception to the bridge pairs can be used to expand the existing wireless network. To add new radios to the network, simply key the new subscriber unit to the existing access point, ensuring that the Network Name, Encryption Key, and Channel are identical to those of the radios of the existing network. Only the 900MHz and 2.4 GHz radios have the option of switching from a subscriber to an access point and vice versa. the 5.8GHz radios do not have that capability.
