The option for 802.11r FT roaming on wlan disappears under WLAN->Advanced->Radio Control if/when I select either WPA3 or mixed WPA2/WPA3 encryption on a wlan. Is that expected behavior and is there a workaround?

Tried to set via CLI and that fails with an error Message that suggest this not possible for WPA3 only networks but suggest it should be possible for mixed (assuming wpa2/3) networks.

Hi Vesalius,

Probably the 802.11r is not supported with WPA3.

"no standard support for fast roaming (802.11r)."
"802.11r support has been left out of the current versions of WPA3-Personal & WPA3-Enterprise"
