WPA3 on existing MRs

Hi,

 

Now we start to see on different OSs (Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, etc...) support for WPA3 but when we could have some visibility about WPA3 for Meraki MR ?

Should it will be supported on existing MR's (which one) ?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

 

Nicolas

Kind of a big deal

The latest news I have seen was:

All of our 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Point customers will receive the latest WPA3 functionality via a seamless cloud update.

 

Source:

No word on timing.

considering that source was from 2018, that would be old news still

To get full Wi-Fi 6 certification WPA3 will be required iirc. So I fully expect Meraki to add it soon.

Good news. Have a look here:

https://community.meraki.com/t5/Wireless-LAN/New-Wi-Fi-6-APs/m-p/76632/highlight/true#M11616

 

WPA3 should already be available for testing via NFO.

 

Hope that helps!

It seems this will be following the now-traditional Meraki format of being promised Eventually™ and 2-3 years from now we'll still be asking and waiting for a timeline. See other oft-requested features (IPv6, SSL VPN etc) for more examples...

Hi,

 

Any idea the Firmware 27.x will be available to test WPA3 on MR52 and MR84 ?

Thanks in advance.

@AlexanderI think your previous reply regarding the beta should be flagged as the correct answer.

WPA3 is there since a few times but no support for WPA3 and 802.1x with Meraki Cloud Authentication !

Is there any plan to support it ?

Thanks in advance.
