Windows 10 v2004 supports WiFi 6 and WPA3 standards

In the latest release of Windows 10 Version 2004, Microsoft has brought us many new features, and there are also updates that deserve attention.

This is the WiFi 6 and WPA3 standards for wireless networks. With these standards, Windows 10 Version 2004 is faster and safer in terms of network connection.

Of course, after the operating system supports it, the hardware devices used by the users can also be supported. The most important one is whether the consumer router supports the above standards.

Wi-Fi 6 certification program

Microsoft said

“Windows 10 (Version 2004) supports Wi-Fi 6 and WPA3. Wi-Fi 6 gives you better wireless coverage and performance with added security. WPA3 provides improved Wi-Fi security by using the latest standard.”

Whether the latest standard is supported is actually the easiest to check on the router, where the current wireless network standard can be seen in the wireless network settings of the router.

At the same time, after the user connects to the wireless network, you can also open a command prompt and use netsh wlan show drivers to check the current network connection information.

The command line for supported wireless networks will automatically return a string containing 802.11ax. Note that this operation is only supported on Windows 10 2004.

The WPA3 check can be operated directly on Windows 10. After connecting to the network, click the property of the WiFi name to see the version of the encryption protocol used.

Among them, WPA2 is currently the mainstream encryption protocol, WPA is an insecure old version protocol, and WPA3 version encryption is the latest encryption standard.
