Use WPA or WPA2 mode to achieve a balance of strong security and best compatibility. This mode uses WPA for legacy clients while maintaining higher security with stations that are WPA2 capable. Also the strongest cipher that the client supports will be used. For best security, use WPA2 Only mode. This mode uses AES(CCMP) cipher and legacy stations are not allowed access with WPA security. For maximum compatibility, use WPA Only. This mode uses TKIP cipher. Some gaming and legacy devices work only in this mode.
To achieve better wireless performance use WPA2 Only security mode (or in other words AES cipher).
OK, I undersand that WPA2 is more secure and all, but the above sentences are kind of confusing.
Why does WPA Only offer “maximum compatability”? More “compatability” than WPA or WPA2 mode?
Why does WPA2 Only mode achieve “better performance”? You get more Mbps with WPA2 clients?
