Model: RE200  
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 1.1.2 Build 20201030

I'm starting a new thread because after scouring all other threads regarding this issue, there doesn't seem to be a solution for RE200 v3.

My router itself is using WPA2, and all is good. I've updated my RE firmware, and factory reset it completely; reconnected it to my router. But still, it's showing "weak security". I should add that everything is up-to-date. including my router, iOS, etc.

 

I find this quote from this post (https://community.tp-link.com/en/home/forum/topic/232218): 

Even though your iOS device recognizes the range extender network as weak security, it connects to the network with the stronger WPA2+AES by default, so there won’t be any security concerns upon to this point.

NOT reassuring at all. Is there a page from Apple or elsewhere that can verify this claim? or when will the new firmware to correct this issue be available? many thanks.

@AWOL2020 

Hi, sorry for the delay.

The latest firmware RE200(EU)_V3_201030 has fixed this issue already.

And if you still had the weak security notification on the Apple device, please refer to the following suggestion to have a check:

1. make sure the home router is WPA2-AES only;

2.reset the RE200 v3 and set up again via the web interface, not Tether APP;

3.delete the previous wireless profile of RE200 v3 and search for the new wireless profile and get connected.

4.check again whether the weak security issue still existed;

---if yes, please leave me a private message and I would forward your case to the senior engineers for further assistance.

Thank you very much and wait for your reply.
