    Using a WRT54GX-v2 and the options available are a little confusing.

    I've selected WPA/WPA2 personal for security mode and I've got 3 combo boxes underneath

    box 1 WPA - enable / disable
    box 2 WPA2 - enable / disable
    box 3 Encryption algorithms - TKIP / AES / TKIP+AES

    These MIMO routers have an amazing range so you can appreciate I want the highest level of security.

    I know I should enable WPA2 but what about boxes 1 and 3.
    TKIP+AES - what's all that about? I thought AES was specifically for WPA2 and TKIP was specifically for WPA.

    I'm confused. What options do I select?
