I have noticed on my Iphone for the home WiFi connection from the Connect Box, indicates
that the Wifi security is WEAK.
It says that the Wifi from the Connect Box is using WPA/WPA2 (TKIP) and is considered NOT secure.
It recommends changing the Connect Box WiFi Network to use WPA2(AES) or WPA3
But on the connect Box this cannot been changed.
If I get another Router that handles WPA2(AES) or WPA3 and put the Connect Box in Modem Mode and connect the Router, will this enable the WiFi signal to broadcast on the Stronger Security WiFi of WPA2(AES) or WPA3???

@GC9437_69 , Please change the WIFI security in the modem settings from "WPA-WPA 2 Personal" to "WPA 2 Personal". After that the message disappears.
I have just started to have the same problems
... firstly why might this have changed? started? ....been hacked ???
... secondly, how exactly do I find where / how to change the WAP setting?
On my mobile phone I do not see where to access / see the WAP setting ???
Say I have WEP .... how to configure my router ???
Sorry but how do I actually go about changing the setting ... on my compuuter? on my phone it says I have WEC (not secure) and should change to WPA2 or WPA3 security ... please tell a none IT/Compute specialist how simply to do this as I cannot see where I need to go to make this change. Thank you.

Please proceed as follows:
