    AFAIK, TKIP is there for legacy support. So I suppose if you were askin which is best security-wise, my guess would be AES.

    In my case AES more stable. It's not clear whether it's the client connections or WDS that give me problems with other configurations, but it's definitely more stable for me. To be exact, I use WPA PSK + AES on all my routers.

    AES should be strongly preferred if your client supports it, both security-wise and performance-wise. AES has to be supported by hardware. I think I read somewhere that TKIP implementations can be horribly slow, and WPA2-AES is fastest among the choices.

    IMHO, unless you have devices that do not support AES
    AES is better/faster than TKIP
