    If I use a mixed mode setting on a generic (yet to be purchased) wireless
    router, looking to maximize use of Personal WPA2:AES, do I need to migrate
    existing wireless devices from WPA:TKIP to WPA:AES? Or will the mixed mode of
    the wireless router support wireless devices configured as WPA:TKIP and
    WPA2:AES concurrently? Didn't know if everything had to use AES encryption
    wholesale., whether TKIP had any support under WPA2. Thanks for the
    clarification.
