Weak security

Apple is saying WPA: WAP2  [TKIP) is not considered secure .

 

If this is wi-fi configure router to WPA2 or 3 AES.

Does anyone understand what I have to do please

Re: Weak security

Hi

I did what it said and changed it to WPA 2 and now it won’t let me back in router settings and I’m having to use mobile data.

 

I wanted to change it to another frequency that less people on in. HELP

 

thank you

Re: Weak security

It now won’t let me back on settings, keeps asking for a password , and says someone is already logged on ( that’s me)

 I want to go on a channel that less people use but it’s got to be secure.

Re: Weak security

Do a Hub “pinhole reset” - make sure the 2 passwords on the Hub sticker are still there and legible first ! Disconnect any ethernet cables from the Hub, and then with the Hub still "switched on" throughout, press pin in firmly with paper clip/SIM tray tool or similar "thin thing" and hold it firmly for at least 60 seconds, release the pin, leave for 10’ to stabilise - dont manually switch it off at any time.

Re: Weak security

Then just log into the Hub settings and change it.

Re: Weak security

I’ve changed it to 5 ghz but I don’t know where to find channel 1,6 or 11 and which is the best one.

 

plus I’m still getting a privacy warning on my iPhone.

Re: Weak security

changing the channel will not make the signal stronger
