By default, D-Link devices use WPA2 (AES) and will connect if your client supports it. If your iOS device detects that your D-Link router, access point, or range extender is using a mixed security mode (WPA/WPA2), the warning message is displayed even though you are connected using WPA2 (AES) security.


Some models will receive firmware upgrades to allow you to select WPA2-Personal (or WPA3) instead of using a WPA/WPA2 mixed mode. Note that older clients that do not support WPA2 (AES) will not be able to connect to your WiFi network.


The latest version of firmware for the models below have fixed this issue:


  • DAP-1620 (Rev B)
  • DAP-1820
  • DAP-1755
  • DAP-1955
  • DAP-X1870
  • DIR-1260
  • DIR-1750
  • DIR-1950
  • DIR-2150
  • DIR-2680
  • DIR-L1900
  • DIR-X1560
  • DIR-X1870
  • DIR-X4860
  • DIR-X5460


Future firmware fixes will be available for the D-Link DIR-3060 and DIR-X1860.

  • When manually configuring the DAP-1320, there are two options for setting the wireless network name.
  1. Create your own new “extended” wireless network name and password
  2. Use the same wireless network name and password from your router
  • D-Link suggests creating a new wireless network name and password for the extended signal because it will allow you to easily distinguish between your “primary” signal and your extended signal. When configuring the DAP-1320 as the same name as your router, you do not have the ability to choose what signal to connect to, which could lead to problems and prevent you from using the DAP-1320 efficiently.



  • When placing the DAP-1320, you want to ensure to place it in an area where it has a good signal from the source (router). If the DAP-1320 is installed in an area where the signal strength is weak or low, it will not be able to properly extend the signal and you will notice poor wireless performance.
  • D-Link suggests placing it approx half way between the router and the area you want to extend the signal to.
