Windows 10 warning Deco M5
a week ago
Model: Deco M5
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

On Windows 10 1903 I get a warning "This Wifi network uses an older security standard. We recommend connecting to a different network"

Internet suggests that my system uses the WEP key as security, but I see no option to change it to WPA2 (or 3) 

Can anyone help?

Thanks for your reply.

 

With the error message pops up, are you able to connect to the TP-Link wifi network?

 

Could you please provide a picture of the current issue so that we can do further analysis? 

 

Meanwhile, can other devices connect to the Deco network? 

 

Best regards.

This is the warning we get. In fact it is a warning so we can connect. And all other devices connect without issues Only the one using the 1903 update showed this warning.

I did a search on this error and found this:

Funny thing is that a TP-Link router is advised :) Just not the Deco 5

Hi, I have confirmed that the Deco wireless network uses mixed WPA/WPA2-PSK with AES/TKIP encryption type to enhance the security level.

 

Back to your case, we think there may have 2 possibilities:

1. First, the network adapter installed on the Windows 10 computer detect that the TKIP encryption type which is less secured than AES, even if it is still connected to the AES, it indicates that this network is not secured enough.

2. Second, even though the Deco network supports AES, while the network adapter negotiate the TKIP one by default, that is why the warning message pops up.

 

It is suggested to fix the encryption type of the network adapter to AES and verify whether it works. 

 

You can use telnet command to change the encryption type or go to properties page of the network adapter to do so.

 

May it help and have a nice day.
