I am getting a message that I have weak security

I have a Hub 3.0 and I use a Mac laptop. When I click on the network strength icon in the top toolbar I get a message that I have weak security. Actually I have WPA/WPA2 Personal and the message tells me to reconfigure the router to WPA2/WPA3 Personal (AES). This is not something I feel confident doing! Any tips? Is this a real security problem?

Many thanks - if I update the hub what are the chances my 10 yr old mac book will not work with the updated hub?

If you already use WPA2 with a key that is at least 12 characters long, then you are already secure. I use a random 16 characters key, and I'm probably overdoing it.

I do disable WPS though. If you keep it enabled, I would consider it your biggest security weakness,
