Windows 10 2004 comes with Wi-Fi 6 and WPA3 support

Microsoft announced that Windows 10, version 2004, comes with Wi-Fi 6 and WPA3 support for gigabit speeds and better performance, as well as a more secure wireless network connection.

The Windows 10 May 2020 update was released today by Microsoft, as part of a process of gradual availability to users around the world.

"Windows 10 (2004) supports Wi-Fi 6 and WPA3," says Microsoft. “Wi-Fi 6 offers you better wireless coverage and extra performance safety. WPA3 provides improved Wi-Fi security using the latest standard. ”

Connect to faster and more secure Wi-Fi networks

To connect to wireless networks using Wi-Fi 6 and WPA3, you will need a router with support for both Wi-Fi 6 and WPA3, a wireless network adapter with Wi-Fi 6 support, and Windows 10 2004 installed on computer you.

To check and make sure you have the latest updates for Windows 10 and that the information of Windows May 2020, you need to click the Start button, then go to Settings> Update & Security> Windows Update and click Check for updates button.

You can see if your router supports Wi-Fi 6 and WPA3 by checking documentation or by checking the router manufacturer's website.

“You can also check if your router supports Wi-Fi 6 by opening the command prompt and then typing the netsh wlan show driver command. Look at the supported radio types and see if it includes the 802.11ax, ”explained Microsoft.

To see if you are connected to a Wi-Fi 6 network:

  1. Connect to a Wi-Fi network.
  2. Select the Wi-Fi network icon on the right side workgroup and then select Properties under the Wi-Fi network name.
  3. On the Wi-Fi network screen in the Properties area, see the value next to Protocol. It will say Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) if you are connected to a Wi-Fi 6 network.

To see if you are connected using WPA3 security:

  1. Connect to a Wi-Fi network.
  2. Select the Wi-Fi network icon on the right side of the taskbar, then select Properties under the Wi-Fi network name.
  3. On the Wi-Fi network screen, in the Properties area, see the value next to the security type. It will include WPA3 if you are connected to a network using WPA3 encryption for security.

Wi-Fi 6 and WPA3

Wi-Fi 6 (Wifi 6) is the sixth generation Wi-Fi based on the IEEE 802.11ax standard and comes with several improvements, including indicatively higher data rates, lower latency, increased capacity, better efficiency in environments with many connected devices, as well as improved power output.

WPA3 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 3) is a security standard and user authentication technology developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance to address security vulnerabilities in WPA2 and for better security of wireless computer networks.

WPA3 was announced in January 2018, three months after security researcher Mathy Vanhoef revealed KRACK vulnerability affecting the WPA2 WiFi protocol used by billions of devices.

The template was later released in June 2018 with more durable password-based authentication and the corresponding 192 bit encryption for corporate solutions.

One year later, in April 2019, security researchers Mathy Vanhoef and Eyal Ronen discovered a collection of new WPA3 security issues collectively known as Dragonblood that allow intruders to "break" Wi-Fi network passwords, access them. encrypted drive network exchanged between connected devices and steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, e-mail and other.

Following the revelation of the errors, the Wi-Fi Alliance said in a press release that “these issues can be mitigated through software updates without any effect on the ability of the devices to work well together. There is no evidence that these vulnerabilities have been used and that the manufacturers of the affected devices have already started developing code updates to solve the problem. “

The affected vendors were also informed of WPA3 vulnerabilities by the WiFi Alliance, CERT / CC and the researchers.
