Yes it does.

I did notice an older iPad couldn't connect to the router when it was in mixed WPA2/WPA3 mode which is weird because the iPad works fine when the router is set to use WPA2 security only. It's probably an issue caused by the older IOS version and not the router itself because my android devices that only support WPA2 work fine when the router is in mixed mode.

Thanks.  What iOS version?  All of ours are 13, except my iPhone, which I just updated to 14.

Reason I ask is that I'm seeing reviews of other routers, e.g., Orbi, that have issues.

Time for long overdue replacement of my DIR-868L!  Still works but need modern encryption.  8)

I know of some information regarding mixed mode WPA2/3. Seems that there are known problems with having these two in mixed mode. Not sure what progress on this is. This seems to be at the security mode level in FW on both router and wifi device side of things.

I recommend that if users are having problems with mixed mode, revert to WPA2 only for now. This is a security wide problem that the chipset mfrs have to work on.
