An out-of-band update is now available for Windows 10 version 1909 to fix Wi-Fi connectivity with WPA3.

Microsoft has made available the update KB5001028 as an out-of-band release for devices running Windows 10 version 1909 to address a critical issue when connecting to a Wi-Fi network using Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 (WPA3).

According to the announcement at the Windows message center, the company has found a problem connecting to a wireless network using WPA3 on a small number of devices that have applied the update KB4598298, released on January 21, 2021, or the update KB4601315, released on February 9, 2021.

If you are still using version 1909 and Windows Update is enabled, the fix will download and install automatically. However, you can always force the download manually on Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update, and clicking the Check for updates button.
