in setting up a mixed network of CentOS, WinThings, Cisco, and more... i
need a lil' feedback please re: practical wireless WPA settings...

i always just used WPA PSK and TKIP by defauly (never thought about any
issues here before, DUH!) yet i have done some reading while searching
recently and it appeared to inform me that ummmm if using WPA-PSK that one
should use AES instead of TKIP

will i have issues/problems either way with installing CentOS in a wireless
manner using AES or TKIP for that matter?

again, most of this is about AES vs. TKIP from a engineering, performance,
reliability and more standpoint... then of course CentOS integration etc...

wisdom and comments from the list please?

thank you in advance and kind regards,
