WEAK SECURITY FROM INTERNET TO PHONE

Hi All....Need all of your expert's help once again!  

When I'm home, on my iPhone, it says my wi-fi' security is weak...It never has been before...then on my iPad, using the same internet modem, it doesn't show that it's weak????  Also, on the iPhone it says due to WPA/WPA2  (TKIP) is not considered secure...It says to configure the router to use WPA2 (AES) or WPA3 security type....I've tried "forget this network", etc. which was no help....How do i change it to WPA2 or WPA3???  And why is it fine on my iPad?????  Using the same Network??

Re: WEAK SECURITY FROM INTERNET TO PHONE

You may have different versions of IOS on your phone and iPad.  Apple only started making a fuss about this recently.  I use my own router so I couldn't tell you how to do it on Xfinity's.  It'll probably be right by where you set the SSIDs and passphrases for your wireless networks.
