Hi I am planning on using the WIFI hotspot feature provided by Windows 10 to connect to 4 robots, however I do not know what type of encryption this windows 10 hotspot uses.

WPA2-AES, according to Microsoft.

To provide protection for the wireless communications between the computer hosting SoftAP and the devices connecting to the SoftAP, the wireless Hosted Network requires that all devices connected use the WPA2-PSK/AES cipher suite.


It uses WPA2-PSK AES. You can not change encryption method.

to so see what changes you can make, such as change the key or network name (SSID) you can use:

netsh wlan show

to list the options.

for example to change the key:

netsh wlan set key = "my passord" keyusage=persistent
