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.

Re: Switch to WPA3 ?

Mixed Mode WPA2/WPA3 isn't supported currently on Orbi AX. Maybe at a future date they will. 

 

Netgear has set up a community forum specifically for the Orbi AX product. Most of the people who watch that forum are more likely to have experience with Orbi AX and know how to work it better than those of us who follow this "general Orbi" forum. Might be more likely to find someone who has a solution if the question is posted there:

Thank you.

Re: Switch to WPA3 ?

There are articles on the internet that seem to suggest, yes. WPA3 can cause problems.

WPA3 is available only on the AX product line. There is a community forum specifically for those products.  If the question is posted to that forum, perhaps users will comment on "what happened" if they switched to WPA3. (and whether they stayed with WPA3 or went back to WPA2).
