Time period for WPA3. Better WPA3 beta, than 14 years old and broken PWA2


quick test.

  • old Android 9 Sony phone : connect correctly in wpa2 psk (5GHz)
  • linux notebook : connect correctly in wpa3 (5GHz also)

No access yet to luci web interface?
No option in gl menu and it is redirected when trying


The redirection may be just a browser issue?

I don’t think.
I tried to force refresh and even tried the url directly in “incognito mode”.

I believe ar750s uses ath10 wireless
does this support 802.11w Management Frame Protection ?

Can you just type
Add # at the end

A friend has been using the firmware on two AR750S for a few days. He’s been up and running so far. He probably uses a WLAN for non WPA3 devices and a WLAN for WPA3 only devices. It looks like this avoids possible problems with not fully wpa3 compliant client devices.

Its looks like, WPA3 is supported on this time by:

I have not tested the new WPA3 firmware because I only have smaler ar750 and ar300.

That’s simply the url to get the gl-inet web management interface.

I’m asking about the openWRT one !

There’s a redirection on the usual openwrt url (and anything else in fact): ->


    <meta http-equiv='refresh' content='1; url=/#' />


I do extroot on my 750. have 19.07.2 clean loaded and use wpa3 no problem. also have freeradius3 and testing with wpa3_peap loaded. :wink:

I have tested wpa2/wpa3 mixed mode sae and eap (enterprise) and have seen wpa2 working and wpa3 clients stepping down to wpa2 making it useless. What I have also read is to never have two ap’s on the same radio with different security schemes which I tested and found it not to be necessary but actually worked fine. please don’t take my word for it but please test yourself incase my testing was in correct cause i really diddn’t believe it myself. maybe a new enhancement in 19.07.x? Note no mixing enterpise because that defaulted to enterprise

I’m trying to use IPv6 with this ar750s-3.200 firmware. I can’t seem to get any IPv6 addresses on my client machines on the LAN.

I have run this first to enable IPv6:

uci set glipv6.globals.enabled=1 && uci commit

But I can’t get IPv6 addresses to show up on my LAN. Does anyone have a working set of /etc/config/network, /etc/config/dhcp, and /etc/config/firewall to let this work?

(Not currently using a VPN, so not worried about information leakage.)

If you do not mind I ask, did you reboot the router after you do that?

Pls also show /etc/config/network

I ended up getting it working by just putting this behind another router and setting it to be a dumb AP. (no firewall, bridged WAN, LAN, & Wifi).

WPA3 is working just fine though. I’ve noticed that other people are having issues with IPv6 and some routers with 19.07.x I wonder if that is an issue here?

(And yes, I did reboot the router.)

Open WRTR 19.07.3/ now available:

“Upgrading to OpenWrt 19.07.3
Upgrading from previous OpenWrt 19.07 versions is straightforward thanks to the sysupgrade utility: sysupgrade from web interface or sysupgrade from command-line.”
Source: https://openwrt.org/releases/19.07/notes-19.07.3

It may be that some of the a little more security conscious users are ready for a test of a more secure gl firmware…

Apple is supporting WPA3 since iOS Version 13

There are still issues to be resolved with WPA2/WPA3 interoperability…

It’s mostly on older devices that do support WPA2, but the new epigrams can/will cause issues here on the client side…

One other vendor of WiFi4 and WiFi5 router, which use open wrt 19.07.x firmware and support mixed mode forWPA2/3 Personal, reporting its need by some clients to reconnect once (setup the connection to the client new by typing the password). I have the same experience with WiFi5 router which supporting mixed WPA2/3 to WiFi6 client devices. No problems, after first new logon by typing wifi password.

Don’t confuse Wife 4/5/6 with WPA2/3 please…

Patches applied on AR150 on openwrt master, which is WiFi4, can support WPA3


I dont confuse this. I’ve changed the wording a little bit to make it more clear.

Great news. The stable of OpenWrt 19.07.4 are out now:

On openwrt.org are already available the 19.07.4 at minimum for p.e. follow mainstream router:

How about a release by gl ?

If I dont have seen wrong by one other vendor, on of minimum of his routers, offer now by same hardware a higher wifi channel bandwide and wifi speed. (changed from 20 to 40 MHz or from 40 too 80 MHz or like this by same Hardware)
