Weak Security - WPA/WPA2 (TKIP)
« on: September 18, 2020, 03:32:01 AM »

Since iOS 14 is out, I am seeing a warning 'Weak Security" associated to my WIFI connection.

"WPA/WPA2(TKIP) is not considered secured. If this is your Wi-Fi Network, configure the router to use WPA2 (AES) ot WPA3 security type".

I dont see these settings being offered from the COVR Console. Did I miss something?

I am using 1.06b3 in bridge mode.

Link>Welcome!

  • What region are you located?

I would contact D-Link support and ask them about this. This maybe a iOS to COVR issue that your device is not connecting at AES mode correctly or the iOS is interpreting something incorrectly. AES some standard and is used by default on the COVR router. iOS 14 is too new and may have some incompatibles that D-Link and Apple need to review.

Same problem, noticed the weak security notice on an iphone.

I fired up a wifi scanner and it confirmed on all bands it runs TKIP (WPA) instead of the preferred AES (WPA2)

The covr firmware is annoying, there's no options whatsoever. I hate this trend for appliance-dom for electronics. If you're trying to make it as unconfigurable as an appliance at least it should be reliable.

What iOS version is on the phone?
I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this.
Link> Tech Support Contact Information
We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.
Let us know how it goes please.

I doubt that the COVR is using TKIP, and the Wifi Analyzer that I am running from W10 seems to indicate that indeed, it runs AES-CMP, not TKIP.

I rather think that the protocol being used seems to indicate to the iOS client that a mix mode is being used from the Access Point,  ie "WPA or WPA2", while the iOS expected a stricter "WPA2 only".

Not sure if D-Link will correct this for COVR systems. It happens on the 2200 series. Please make contact with D-Link support about this.
