Model: Deco S4
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version: 2.0.16

Recently I set up an DECO S4 mesh network and was pleased that it improved the wifi coverage at our home. But last night I installed Apple's IOS14 beta on my phone. When I checked the wifi connection in settings there was a notice that the setting wasn't secure -- that I should change the router to the WPA2-PSK [AES] protocol. Problem is that I can't do that because the S4 doesn't have that protocol available.  It is my understanding that several mesh tp-link networks don't have WPA2-PSK [AES]. The six-year-old router the the S4 network replaced has the WPA2-PSK [AES] protocol. Now more wifi equipment is using it. The S4 system isn't brand new on the market but it is certainly new enough that it should have the WPA2-PSK [AES] protocol.  Hopefully there will be a firmware update to address this problem.

Hello,

 

Thank you for sharing your opinion and valued suggestions.

 

This feature request of changing wireless security on the Deco network has been forwarded to the developers with the highest priority and it will be added in the future firmware. Please keep an eye on the Deco app or on the TP-Link official website as we will update the information once there are any updates. 

 

At the current stage, however, we cannot provide an exact ETA to our customers as the developers need to evaluate the feasibility to add new features and do round and round tests to ensure its performance.

 

Thanks a lot for your cooperation and understanding. Have a nice day.
