I have followed the instructions given to resolve this problem but I do not get the same options when I log into my router. My router is a D-LINK so when I log in, using the username and password on my router I am given the options of selecting WPA/WPA2, WPA2 or WPA
WPA2-PSK is not given as an option. So I have selected the WPA2 mode and saved it but then nothing happens. I cannot see anything about Encryption. Can anyone help please? Thank you

My instructions only applied to the DSL-3782, your router is much older and a totally different UI. Go into Advanced mode & then go to:-
Setup > Wireless Setup > Manual Wireless Network Setup
In the WPA section, set it to WPA2 Only. Note it does say that this will use AES encryption:-
While I was waiting to get through to Talktalk I checked my phone and the weak signal message has disappeared !! So, thank you very much for your help. You've succeeded where Talktalk had failed! Much appreciated
Please be aware that none of this was TalkTalk's fault. This is just a warning message from Apple just because TalkTalk make their routers more compatible with modern & older devices. However, the security settings are negotiated when a device tries to connect to your WiFi and unless you have anything old, they will still use WPA2 Personel with AES encryption. All Apple are moaning about is that you have the choice. All my configuration does is remove that compatibility with older devices. So it is now possible that some devices of yours may no longer connect to the router.
Hi Fennymum, KeithFrench has done a great job of helping you with an Apple device after it's been updated. Please be sure to mark the post that helped you most as the best answer this will help other Apple users figure out the change.
