Wi-Fi / Windows 10 warning

Hi, I keep getting an error message from windows 10.Version 20H2 (OS build 19042.928), and it refers me to this page.

Wi-Fi network not secure in Windows 10

You might see a notification that tells you that you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network that’s not secure because it uses an older security standard. For example, this can occur if you connect to a Wi-Fi network that uses WEP or TKIP for security. These security standards are older and have known flaws.

To fix this issue, do one or more of the following:

  • If there’s another Wi-Fi network that’s in range that you recognize and trust, disconnect from your current Wi-Fi network, then connect to the other one. For more info, see Connect to a Wi-Fi network in Windows 10.

  • If you’re connecting to your home Wi-Fi network, consider changing the type of security that your router or access point uses. You can do this by signing in to your router using the software for it, and then changing the security type for your home Wi-Fi network. For more info, see the documentation for your router or Setting up a wireless network.

  • What do I do, The only ID on the hub / router is "Hub3" and is at the factory settings. .Ray
  • If you have an older router or access point, you could also consider getting a newer router that supports the latest security standards and improvements.

Re: Wi-Fi / Windows 10 warning

Sounds similar to the iOS 14 weak security warning, see this post for setting that you can change on the hub:
