WPA vs WPA2
Of course the drop down list doesn't have the model of my extender. It's an AC1200/RE305.
Yes, yet another reason I've ordered 2 extenders from a different mfr. I've been fighting with
weird issues that I've never had with extenders before. At first during setup I would copy and
paste the long, secure password, then when I was trying to connect to the wifi I would copy
and paste again, and it would say it was the wrong password. I could connect via network
drop and SEE the password in the TPlink app, but when I copied and pasted from the same
text I used to set it, it wouldn't work. Somehow that problem resolved itself since I didn't change
the way I was doing anything, only to have another weird issue arise. When I try to connect to the
2.4, it says it's unable to connect, to move closer even though the extender is literally right by where I'm sitting.
When I try to connect to the 5ghz, I'm able to log in (even though I did have the initial weird password
issue), but the connection shows WPA/weak security even though the config shows WPA/WPA2
security. As I said before, I've never had this issue with any extender before, and I've been using
extenders for many years, even helped multiple friends, family, and even co-workers set up extenders.
