WPA3 depends on your client devices supporting WPA3. If they don't then they won't connect if the router is set to WPA3. If WPA2/WPA3 is available try that mode. If not, you'll need to set WPA2/AES only.

Will have to ask those Mfrs if there going to implement WPA3. It will be up to them to do that.

If you use only wpa3, then the devices have to have wpa3 built in. Not many do. Which is the point of mixed wpa2/wpa3 mode if the router supports it. 

the problem with switching to newer wifi protocols is some older devices don't support them. So you either use an older protocol, use a mixed mode, or simple run an old AP for those devices.
