    The Shared Key can be anything you like, the longer the better.

    Go with AES if all your wireless devices support this. AES is part of the 802.11i specs (or WPA2), while TKIP was introduced as a stop gap while 802.11i was being rectified.

    Change Group Key Renewal interval if you experience disconnection issues.
