Model: Deco E4
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.1.1 Build 20190917 Rel. 75120

I cannot find a setting in the Deco app or in the web dashboard to set WPA mode to WPA-2 only and disable WPS and TKIP. I want my WiFi security settings set to WPA-2 PSK (AES) only and disable WPS.

 

Having WPS, WPA, and TKIP is a security nightmare! I was really surprised to find out that the Deco E4 does not have the option to change these settings.

When iOS 14 is released in September, millions of TP-Link Deco mesh networks will be branded as having WEAK SECURITY. Millions of people will find out and they will likely stop recommending Deco to other people unless TP-Link fixes this issue.

@neilrg Can confim this.

I am on iOS 14 Beta 4 now and I have the same warning message in WiFi settings on my devices.

 

I don't know if TP-Link will fix this since for my nearly 2-year-old P7 system I only received one (!) update since I bought it - and it is full of bugs and missing must-have-features I've already reported several times to the TP-Link support.

 

Better search for another Mesh system.... but Meshes with WiFi and backhauling function are very rare :(

@TP-Link_Deco any estimate on the beta or official firmware update with WPA2/AES fix for the Deco E4?

@TP-Link_Deco 

 

We need a solution like this also for the repeaters. There are many threads in the Repeater section of the forum reporting the same issue.

But no reliable answer so far.

Can you please ask a colleague of yours to provide a reliable feedback? So far we have received none and we are worried about the security of our networks.

 

Thank you
