    Does anyone know if the WAG325N is supposed to support simultaneous connections from WPA and WPA2 clients? The fact that it has a WPA2 TKIP+AES option would indicate to me that WPA fallback is available, but maybe I'm reading it wrong.

    Even my basic Belkin 54G router can do WPA+WPA2 mixed mode.

    Linksys tech support have been no help so far.

    My understanding it this is what TKIP+AES is, it supports WPA and WPA2 clients. However WPA2 introduced AES-based algorithm and CCMP (Cipher Block Chaining Message Authentication Code Protocol) I dont know if this is backward compatible with WPA

    Thanks for the post Toxic.

    The reason I want to enable WPA+WPA2 is because the router is being used to provide guest access for a small business which will have many & varied clients connecting, for which we would like to provide the highest level of security available, whilst still providing a default level for older hardware.

    Unfortunately I have limited physical access to the router (remote management only at the moment), so testing of various options is problematic at this stage. I was hoping someone may have tested this in real life.

    I've already had 2 users not being able to connect (XP SP2 WZC - no WPA2 patch) until I turned the protocol back to WPA.
