Lexus WiFi Hotspot "Weak" security reported on ipad


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Just trying to finalise the hotspot setup in my new RX and when I join an ipad (running IpadOS14.2) to the hotspot, the ipad tells me the security between the hotspot and the ipad is "weak".  The hotspot settings (accessible from 192.168.0.1 when joined to your hotspot) show the wifi security is set to WPA2 AES (which the ipad weould consider secure), but the ipad is telling me it has joined using WPA2 TKIP instead.  A windows 10 laptop seems to join using AES, so perhaps the ipad is at fault here?  

Has anyone seen/resolved this one?

Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) is less secure and has been surpassed by Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) so use AES if you can.

Hi.   The wifi box itself is set to AES only but somehow the ipad thinks it is connecting with tkip.

Windows devices report connecting with AES.  I dont see a way on the ipad of forcing an AES connection (although on the router side, tkip should not even be available to the ipad).

Cheers,

Paul

Hi All,

I changed the SSID of the box and reconnected and now the ipad is no longer complaining.  It seems as though even through the box was previously set to WPA2/AES only, it may not have been until I changed the SSID. I suspect that previously it was actually running in hybrid WPA/WPA2 mode, even though it said it wasn't.

Cheers,

Paul
