RE220 - is there any way to disable WPA+PSK and only allow WPA2+PSK please?
We have recently bought a RE220 range extender. It seems to be solving our problems perfectly, but there is a thing we'd like to check. We wonder if it's possible to disable access via WPA+PSK and only allow the newer and more secure WPA2+PSK, please?
The reason we're asking is that we've checked our Wi-Fi using a scanning tool called inSSIDer, and it reported that the Range Extender is allowing the older WPA+PSK as well as WPA2+PSK. It suggested turning off the older protocol, claiming it presents a security risk.
I'm not sure whether this is risk is actually 'real' - my understanding is that the original WPA used an inferior encryption method (TKIP) and the newer WPA2 uses a better one (AES), but I am guessing that (a) all devices that support WPA2+PSK will default to that and not use TKIP, and (b) even with a very old device that only supports WPA-PSK and TKIP, a very long WPA key will still effectively be uncrackable in reasonable time.
Is my understanding correct, please?
Also, it would be great if a future version of the firmware allows users to disable the older WPA+PSK and TKIP. (My main router does this by default.)
Thanks in advance for your help.
