hub switch on open warning
after switching on my hub, and waiting for the green lights to cease prior to the hub white light only on, my laptop gives a warning which lasts a a minute or longer prior to secure connection-
vm------ (ssid) wi fi list on laptop
Open-other people might be able to see what you see over this network
this seems to happen as the hub powers up and connects but then says secured, is this normal .I normally switch off the hub at night.
Does this mean the hub is not secure during powering up/connecting?? is this a vulnerability??
Or is my laptop giving a false indication? Does not happen all the time, just occasionally I notice this.

Thanks for the advice, I have just checked my wifi security, it seems ok with security wpa2-personal and encryption aes and password.
I do have the wep pushbutton only activated on hub3 for use for one of my printers that can only connect that way- no interface just a wifi button. (not using wep pin disabled)
my windows dns settings had changed so I have reset that was unusual.
I have network discovery switched on, not sure if it should be off or would that stop printers from working.
printer sharing switched off.
The warning- Open-other people might be able to see what you see over this network- means "not password protected".
I will assume all is ok but odd do not get it all the time, perhaps something has changed, or hub was updating for a long period.
