Will WPA3 work on existing hardware?



“how do i add a line of text to a textfile” never gets old :wink:


We were all n00bs once. Some of us quite a long time ago - like 38 years :wink:


hostapd (which is used by turris OS) already supports WPA3, so the main thing needed is for devs to update package to latest git


and by hostapd I mean binary:
# ps aux|grep hostapd
root 4463 0.1 0.0 2100 1256 ? Ss Jun28 103:30 /usr/sbin/hostapd -P /var/run/wifi-phy1.pid -B /var/run/hostapd-phy1.conf
root 4494 0.0 0.0 2100 720 ? Ss Jun28 10:13 /usr/sbin/hostapd -P /var/run/wifi-phy0.pid -B /var/run/hostapd-phy0.conf


hostapd does not appear being installed by default but hostapd-common (2016-12-19-7).


Synology routers support WPA3-Personal and Enterprise.



LANCOM with their latest firmware update started support


According to https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/network/wifi/basic OpenWRT 19.01 will feature support for WPA3
