Archer C5 weak security on IOS 14 devices
2021-02-01 23:38:47
Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version: 3.16.0 0.9.1 v6014.0 Build 200212 Rel.30619n

Apparently, the router Archer C5 continues working on mixed mode for the authentication even with the following configuration. It doesn't make sense as the configuration should be mandatory instead of continuing using TKIP.

Since making the change on your router, was the wireless network forgotten then connected back so you are prompted for the wireless password again?

 

If you use a WiFi analyzer (app on your smartphone) does that indicate WPA/WPA2 still?

Yes, I did it, but after a while, the warning did appear again. Actually, I've decided to come back to my first router, I tested the coverage/speed with the Archer and it was awful, many of my devices started to navigate very slow (from 180Mbps to 15~20Mpbs).

 

I didn't try with wifi analyzer. For now, I'll continue using my other router. Honestly, I'm very disappointed with the Archer C5. Perhaps I'll connect it again to test, Thanks!!

@Tony Hi! According to App Wifi Analyzer, the security is wpa-psk-ccmp+tkip (1st image), but the router is configured as follows (2nd image)

 

Any firmware update?
