Orbi Pro (AC) v2.5.3.110 - Guest portal now supports WPA2 mode

@Leia you confused me with the recent v2.5.3.110 firmware annoucement for the Orbi Pro (AC)s.

 

"Guest portal now supports WPA2 mode"

 

Isn't this suppoed to be WiFi Enhanced Open (if certified), based on Opportunistic Wireless Encryption (OWE, RFC8110), which is typically called Enhanced Open in WPA configuration controls? This is supposed to work with both WPA2 and WPA3 where available IMHO. Disadvantage is that clients not supporting OWE will fail to connect.

No. This is different feature. WPA2 here provides wireless encyption to protect data in guest network.

Thank you @BruceGuo - This does mean we have to provide a preshared key then?

Yes. WPA2 requires that. I know it is not the best UX but in the platform that's so far we can do for data protection.
