WPA2 (AES) or WPA3

I've gotten messages on my iphone and ipad that my wifi gateway is using a weak security protocol.  I have a Cisco DPC3941T gateway that is using WPA/WPA2 (TKIP).  How do I change it to use either WPA2 (AES) or WPA3?

Hi, @pdmorg. I wanted to follow up on your post to see how everything is going. Have you had a chance to follow the steps mentioned by @flatlander3. If so, were you able to update the security options as needed?

@XfinityVianney Can someone post a link to an Xfinity page that shows how to change WPA settings to WPA2?

Not sure that this still applies due to all of the firmware changes. Give it a try and please let me know;

To change the Comcast router security level to WPA2 /AES you can follow these steps:

1. Connect to your WiFi network and go to http://10.0.0.1, and sign in.
Note: If you haven't changed it, the default username is admin and the default password is password.
2. Once logged in, you can go to Gateway > Connection > Wi-Fi.
3. To change your Security Mode, select Edit next to Security Mode, then select your WPA2 mode.
4. Once your desired option is selected, hit Save Settings.
