TL-WA850RE v2.0 - OSX Big Sur shows "Weak Security"
2023-01-09 20:26:57
Model: TL-WA850RE  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.0.0 Build 20220615 Rel. 52081

Hello,

OSX BigSur shows "Security Warning" with this Range-Extender.

It is set to WPA2 Personal and as NetSpot Screenshot shows, it's communicating with that Standard/Protocol.

So why does OSX tell it's insecure ?

airport -s command shows the following, so i guess warning is because of TKIP being offered

 

# /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport -s
                            SSID BSSID             RSSI CHANNEL HT CC SECURITY (auth/unicast/group)

      FRITZ!Box 7590 DH Repeater 98:de:d0:ae:f0:9d -57  11      Y  -- WPA2(PSK/AES,TKIP/TKIP)

how can i make sure that the client (iphone, android phone, osx macbook, win10 notebook) is connected with WPA2/AES or disable TKIP ?

  @RolandKl 

Hi, have you tried to reset the 850RE V2 once, and set it up again via web UI, not WPS or Tether APP?

Wait for your reply.

Best regards.

  @David-TP thanks, but i have freshly setup this device via factory reset.

it should automatically derive wifi security settings based on those active on the main router?

apparently, it does not work.

  @RolandKl 

Thank you for the update.

I will follow up on your case via email and check with the senior engineer to see whether he had other suggestions. Please check whether you could get an email from me later.

Best regards.
