Windows 11 will stop working with some Wi-Fi routers
February 21, 2022 | Sciense | No Comments|
Microsoft has released a beta version of a global update for the Windows 11 operating system with many innovations, among which was the refusal to work with equipment that supports the old WEP and TKIP encryption protocols.
The WEP encryption protocol appeared in 2002, and TKIP – in 2013. Since then, many vulnerabilities have been discovered in them that are well known by hackers and are used to carry out attacks.
When you try to establish a connection with WEP or TKIP security, Windows 11 will display a pop-up window warning you to use a more modern encryption protocol.
This is not a problem for most modern Wi-Fi routers, since they support the same WPA2 (and some WPA3), however, older devices will stop working.
