Model: Deco S4
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.1.5 Build 20191023 Rel. 67285

I've just purchased the Deco S4 v2.8 to replace another router and I need to connect devices that require WPA2-AES (instead of WPA-TKIP).

Deco S4 specs say that it supports BOTH WPA/WPA2 but my WiFi Analyzer shows it only broadcast WPA-TKIP. There is not way to configure the Deco mesh to provide only WPA2-TKIP like even the cheapest unbranded routers do.

Please add WiFi Security Configuration in the NEXT Firmware Update so we can choose between WPA2-AES, WPA-TKIP, etc.

If that feature is not going to be available soon, I'll have to return the Deco S4 and get a WiFi mesh system that does support WPA2-AES.

Installed iOS14 beta in my iPhone and immediately had problems due to "weak security" in the WiFi network (Deco S4), with the proposed solution being to configure security to AES. This will be a major issue (we are not just talking about Volvo cars) once iOS14 is formally released in a few weeks.

Therefore, TP-Link's "AES option will come in a firmware update soon" typical response will have to be effective in the next few weeks, before iOS14.
