What authentication does client use - WPA2 or WPA3?

Is there a way of telling what authentication method a particular client has used?

I have enabled WPA2 and WPA3 as below:

but how can I see in the dashboard if the client used WPA2 or WPA3?

Kind of a big deal

My personal experience - I have experienced a lot of client incompatibilities with both WPA2 and WPA3 enabled.  So if you have a lot of devices, expect some of them to not be able to connect - at all.

 

This then means you can run WPA3 only if all of your devices support that - which is very unlikely.

 

Leaving the only option of continuing to use WPA2 at the moment.

Thanks for the Heads Up Philip.

Have you logged this with Meraki and if so what was their response?

I will report back on my experience when I make this change.

Not worth my time ...

@PhilipDAth  Just thought I would let you know that I have migrated over 500 clients across 9 sites in the US and Europe without any issues.

 

Here are the settings I now have:
