WPA3 is currently certified on the AC 9260 NIC.    Does WPA3 require this newer hardware, or will it also be certified and available on the older AC NICs ? ​

Hello tverd2 and n.scott.pearson Thank you for posting in the Intel Community. Allow me to share with you that WAP3 is not supported on the wireless adapter that you have motioned and no certification applies to them for future references. Regards, Leonardo C.

Just my opinion, but I rather doubt that Intel will go back and certify this on discontinued NIC products. That said, if their standard Wireless engine is updated with support, it may just work on these older Wireless NICs.
