Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.3.0

I am trying to connect my car ( Volvo XC60 ) to my Wifi. The car wants me to change WPA2 to AES instead of TKIP!

So no connection!

Connection to another Wifi router with WPA2 AES is OK!

I can not find any place in the Deco M9 settings to change Wifi security!

Any clues??

Hello all, thanks very much for your patiently waiting and support.

 

Our developers recently have provided beta firmware for the Deco devices, which allows you to change the wireless security type for your Deco network, you can get the specific firmware for your Deco model in the below thread if you are willing to update it:

Note: Ensure you are running the latest Deco app on your phone first, Android version 2.2.1, and iOS 2.2.2.

 

Let the community know if you have any inquiries, thanks a lot~

@Ingvar 

Deco supports WPA2 AES and TKIP, in a normal case, if the client support AES encryption, it will connect to the Deco with AES encryption.

Currently, as you know, this feature to fix the security type is not available now. But we do receive some similar feedback and keep recording the same kind of request. Then we can forward it to our product engineer and they can work on it. We will upload the information on our official website if there are any updates. It is very suggested to keep an eye on the official website and wait for the updates.

Good day!

Same request. The Deco M9 Plus needs an option to select WPA2 AES only for security.

@ThePiston 

For now, there is no ETA when this feature will be available, but we will forward the customer's inquiry to the product engineer soon thus they can work on it.
When a new feature will be added with the firmware upgrade, there is a long journey to launch a new firmware cause lots of tests need to be done to ensure its performance. 

It is very suggested to keep an eye on the official website and wait for the updates. 

Good day.

@Ingvar I'm trying to connect my car to the Deco home network and I cannot do it. The reason is that I can't set security to WPA2 AES on the Deco app. Please fix this! Thank you!

There is no editable web interface to the Deco M9+, I see only the same information that is available in the Deco App. It would be nice to have some more access! At least the basics! Thanks!

Same here, unbelievable such a kind of product do not support AES which is available as a standard for several years !!!!

Same request here, my phone has started warning me that my WiFi network isn't as secure as it could be, and that I should turn on AES is possible... but no option exists in the settings for the Deco... Come on TP Link fix it!
