Re: WPA3 issues

Sorry to be late to this thread. I was just thinking of switching my RBR/RBS network to WPA3-Personal [SAE] but wondered, "am I going to regret this?" Except for a somewhat dated Samsung TV, I *think* that all of my (mostly Apple) devices should work....

Re: WPA3 issues

Make sure that ALL of your devices support WPA3. I would guess that most may not. Not alot of client side devices support WPA3, especially older devices. Check with the Mfr of thsse devices for additional help and information regarding this.

Re: WPA3 issues

If all your devices support WPA3, there's no reason to regreat it. WPA3 fixes some security weaknesses and makes IEEE 802.11w mandatory, which is long overdue.

 

The only problem is interoperability with devices in the wild, sadly including brandnew ones (and IoT in particular). If all your devices support it, great - sadly the situation is different for most of us, partially because of older device, partially because of contemporary IoT devices, partially because of brandnew devices where the vendor messed up and doesn't really support WPA3 despite claiming to do so, partially because you may have friends and family coming over with non-WPA3-compliant devices.

 

But, there's no harm done in trying - if it succeeds in your environment, great.

Re: WPA3 issues

Has NG fixed the WPA3 issues yet?  I am having trouble with a wifi doorbell.

Re: WPA3 issues

Does the door bell support WPA3? if not, you'll need to use WPA2.

Re: WPA3 issues

Sure enough that was the problem.  I have the newest arlo and you would think it would be.  Thanks for the response.

Re: WPA3 issues

Im sure theres still lots of devices that don't support WPA3 as of yet. 

Glad it worked. Enjoy. Smiley Wink
