WPA2

Yesterday when we me and Mr. Elkner set up the AP after school in the web interface there were multiple WPA2 encryption types. We tried mixed but it didn't work so I just set it to personal. I looked them up and there are 2 big differences between all three. WPA2 mixed uses AES and TKIP authentication. TKIP is very old and can be cracked using the same methods against WEP. WPA2 (personal) uses only AES authentication which is secure for now and WPA2 enterprise uses a RADIUS server for authentication which isn't necessary for us. I'll leave router to use WPA2 personal for now.
