The wireless network places vital role in the present day communication scenario. The ad hoc nature ofwireless communication adds flavour to suit various real world applications. This improves the performance of the network tremendously while the clustering mechanism gets added to the ad hoc network. It has been found out that the existing WCA lacks in forming efficient clusters. Thus, this work proposes an Extended weighted partitioning around cluster head mechanism by considering W-PAC as a base to form clusters. The cluster members are configured with IPv6 address. This IPv6 clusters formedthrough W-PAC will be taken further for validation to determine the perfectness of clusters. The cluster formation and maintenance have been implemented in C++ as a programming language. The cluster validation has been carried out using OMNET++ simulator.
