    Which is better: aes or tkip? I can never get my wireless connected when I
    set it for aes. It only connects with tkip, so I might not have any choice.
    But should I care anyway?

    Generally, a wireless router or access point will support only one at a
    time -- either AES or TKIP.

    I prefer AES myself because it is a very good encryption algorithm. Use
    TKIP at home and AES at work (my home system contains a client card
    which doesn't support AES).

    Either is OK. No reports that either can be broken (except when using a
    weak key). So use a good key and don't worry.

    AES is WPA2 - not all hardware supports this (my desktop's WiFi PCI card
    doesn't.)
