    Is the TS5352a, updated with the latest firmware, compatible with WPA3 Personal? Or only WPA2?

    I found canons manual for your printer, https://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/2/0300037132/02/TS5300ser_OnlineManual_Win_EN_V02.pdf
    Seems that these ts300 series support wired and wireless, page 66 recommends wpa or wpa 2, it seems wpa3 is not mentioned or supported.
    I'll be honest I hadn't paid attention to this roll out, wpa may be becoming standard router side, but I have a mid tier asus that is only a few years old and I don't even have wpa 3 as an option for my router, its a pretty high level of encryption and I think wpa 2 with a strong password is more than sufficient for home use.

    Consumer level electronics like a printer or your amazon kindle are going to be the last to be adopters of the tech change.

    all that being said in my last post, canon would have to post on their website when they are going to make it available in firmware, the documentation for the printer will likely never be updated with that detail if they do push out wpa3 as added support.

    They aren't even listing multiple firmware downloads but they would include changes in the firmware notes for the download.
