The latest release of OpenWrt will be fully available on January 12th, 2020. They started the final builds on the fifth. I upgraded one of my Meraki APs with the release candidate earlier because I am excited for WPA3. I just started updating the rest of my APs and wanted to share the process I used to enable WPA3.
The documentation which I saw, tells you to install wpad-openssl for WPA3 support. I found it to be slightly more complicated than that. I saw the error below and I imagine others might too…
root@OpenWrt:~# opkg install wpad-openssl Installing wpad-openssl (2019-08-08-ca8c2bd2-1) to root... Collected errors: * check_conflicts_for: The following packages conflict with wpad-openssl: * check_conflicts_for: wpad-basic * * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package wpad-openssl.
I found the following command worked well for me.
root@OpenWrt:~# opkg update root@OpenWrt:~# opkg --force-depends --force-maintainer --force-overwrite install hostapd-openssl wpa-supplicant-openssl wpad-openssl
After a reboot I was able to enable WPA3 within the Luci interface.
It doesn’t look like Debian Buster or Fedora 31 supports WPA3 yet, but my Android phone is connected.
