Thread: wpa3 not proposed in Networkmanager

    Default Re: wpa3 not proposed in Networkmanager

    I think it is kind of getting embarrassing that wpa3 still does not work - in the meantime i have a brand spanking new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme 2nd, model 20QVS14E00
    and can still not connect to an access point wpa3 that my phone is accessing via WPA3 with no problems

    here the network card in my new laptop

    *-network

    When you say "not proposed" are you saying it's not an option when you create a new network connection and you inspect the dropdown options in the WiFi security tab?
    Or something else?

    I think you should try installing the wpa_supplicant from hardware, or wait until https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/836104 reaches Tumbleweed.

    (Unfortunately I don't own cards suitable to test the theory)

    I've not yet had an opportunity to test connecting to WPA3 (maybe I'll have a chance with my new laptop when pandemic restrictions are loosened and I try connecting to more APs),

    But supposedly Network Manager first introduced support for WPA3 in 2019 (?) maybe a year earlier. Should be standard in all current Network Manager today.

    But, based on an Internet search I do see other articles about wpa_supplicant, slow adoption by hardware vendors, some older hardware upgradeable but not universally... a lot of information of varying reliability.

    In any case, if you absolutely know that you've deployed a WPA3-Personal(note this is a very specific part of WPA3) on your Access Point and you know your hardware supports WPA3-Personal and has updated firmware, then I'd expect that Network Manager should offer WPA3-Personal as a security option when you create your network connection.

    In my opinion, the problem lies with wpa_supplicant not having SAE enabled during the build.

    This has been recently changed and should reach Tumbleweed in a few days.
    If you want to test this theory, try installing wpa_supplicant from the hardware project.

    Yeh, I confirm. I can now connect to a WPA3 access point using Tumbleweed. Great!!
    Accesspoint running openwrt 19.0.4 on a netgear r6220 just for the records.
