Wifi security

I have a MacBook Pro set to Mac OS Monterey Version 12.6.8. My router is a Virgin Hub 3.0. When I check my hub settings I see the security is given as WPA2-PSK, but my toolbar shows a weak security setting of just WPA. Why is this and should I do something about it?

This warning from Apple kit occurs when a Hub 3 (or any WI-Fi service) is set to WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK

Connect to the Hub 3 at http://192.168.0.1/  log in with the 8 digit password

Then in the Hub 3 menu :

Advanced Settings >>> Wireless >>> Security

Change Security to WPA2-PSK on both 2.4 and 5GHz bands and the Apple kit will be content the connection is secure.

Thanks for your reply Client62. At 2.4GHZ my hub security is set to WPA2-PSK but my hub will not allow me to change settings at 5GHz. Please see the attached screenshot. Screenshot 2023-08-22 at 16.25.11.png

I thought this too.  When the SSID are the same for 2.4 and  5Ghz,  set Security to WPA2-PSK for the 2.4Ghz band and then click "Apply changes".    When the page refreshes both the 2.4 & 5GHz will have changed to the desired mode of WPA2-PSK !


If the SSID are the same but the Security for 2.4 and 5 Ghz are out of step, I can bring them back into line by

1) On 2.4 set Security to  Disabled

2) On 2.4 set Security to WPA2-PSK

3) Click "Apply Changes".

Thanks again - I now have my toolbar showing security as WPS-Personal
