Model: Deco M4
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hi,

 

I'm trying to disable wifi security (set password to blank) on my Deco M4 via WiFi via deco app,

but it keeps saying the password is required.

 

I hope there is an option for a blank password.

There is a lot of use cases for no password wifi.

 

Example:

hotspot

or for guest so you don't have to give the password every time just on/off guest wifi.

 

This is a basic feature.

 

Thanks...

Hello,

 

You may leave the password box empty, which will disable the wireless security for your Deco network.

 

BTW, ensure you are running the latest firmware for your Deco M4.

Hi, are you both running the latest firmware for the Deco M4? If not, please update its firmware first, then confirm again.

 

If it still not allow you to set an open network, please show me the screenshot on your Deco app when you leave it empty and click OK, what's the error message, show me the firmware version of your M4 as well.

 

Thanks a lot.

Hi, what is the current firmware of your Deco M4? You need to update it to the latest firmware first via the Deco app.

 

BTW, you may just stay on the same post, no need to post on different ones, thanks.
