I just got an AX35 and it doesn't have WPA3.  When will it have WPA3?  I bought this router because it was supposed to be more secure than WiFi5 but it doesn't appear to be.  The emphasis is on speed, not security.  It also doesn't have the option to be invisible, making it less secure than my WiFi 5.  Since it's visible and doesn't have WPA3, I'll have to return it unless WPA3 will be added soon.

Re: RAX35 WPA3

I know its in the works. Supposedly at one time you had to have or working on wpa3 support to be labeled wifi 6. As well as it has to roll down from the chipset vendors first which is why the RAX120 (qualcomm) has it.  I believe the RAX35 is a Intel processor. 

I don't know when as I'm not a Netgear employee but Netgear usually doesn't give eta's on rollout of features like this.

Would only need if label said certified by wifi alliance. Netgear tends to by pass that step.
