Re: outdated wifi security

I assume it is an apple product and it is a known problem.

There is a stickie about it I believe.

Re: outdated wifi security

not really a problem.

ISP are always going to default to the most compatible settings to limit on people not able to connect older devices and support calls.

you can change the security settings but some devices may no longer connect.
