'Weak Security' on Virgin Media boosters when using iOS 14

Recently upgraded your iPhone to iOS 14 and have a Hub 3?

You may have noticed a message warning of ‘weak security’ on your WiFi connection. This is nothing to worry about and your WiFi is still perfectly secure.

How to remove the message from your device

Mobile/Desktop only wrapper

Swipe through

Step 1

Connect a laptop to the Booster using an Ethernet cable.



Step 2

Using your browser, login to Virgin Media Powerline Booster's GUI page 

Step 3

Enter the Settings Password which is printed on the back of the Booster (not your WiFi password).




Step 4

Select Wireless settings then Security.





Step 5

Under 2.4Ghz Wireless security settings, check security. If security is not WPAC-PSK, then drop down and select WPA2-PSK.

*This page can only be found when connected to the Booster.

If you’ve set a different Network Name for 5GHz and 2.4GHz you’ll need to make the change for both WiFi bands. Then select Accept Changes at the bottom of the page and the change will be made.
