    NOTE: Only one SSID per Wi-Fi band is currently supported on FX-series routers.
  • Security: Use the drop-down to select one of the following options for Wi-Fi security:
    WPA3/WPA2 Transition is the most secure method of Wi-Fi Protected Access and should be used, if possible, for WPA2 and WPA3 compliant devices.
    WPA/WPA2 Mixed Mode can be used if some of your older devices do not support WPA2.
    WPA2 AES PSK can be used for WPA2 devices.
