Switch to WPA3?

Switch to WPA3?

Just installed Orbi WiFi 6 which is by default setup and running with WPA2. If I were to change this to WPA3, will that cause any issues? Have not used WPA3 before.

You can keep an eye on the compatibility mode which might come to the Orbi AX one day. Trouble is that not all wireless clients can deal with it as expected - this is the reason Netgear does not have the feature available on all WPA3 capable devices.

Unless I'm wrong, mixed mode WPA2/WPA3 isn't supported currently on Orbi AX. 

 

Are all your wireless clients capable of using WPA3?

Good point - no they are not. I will leave it as WPA2 for the time being.
