It helps to some extent. It addresses WPA and not WPA2.

How do I enable IPS?

WPA2/AES is in 12.4.11(XJ), and is supposed to be in the next full T relase (12.4.12T ?)

We've tested it on an 871W and it looks good, but since its an XJ we're waiting for the official release before putting it on production routers.

I will look out for it.

Is it possible to squeeze flash in 877w? There is no squeeze command in the help menu?

I think squeeze was for older routers that used and older type (Class A?) of flash. The 870's use Class B or C type flash, and in my experience when you delete a file its gone, and the space is immediately recovered and available for use.

If you want to format the entire flash system use the 'erase flash' command. Curiously, the options for erase include the '/no-squeeze-reserve-space' option, so that the erase command -does not- reserve two WHOLE sectors (!) for squeeze logs and squeeze buffer. I think this is a leftover command in case you're running on older hardware. The 877's shouldn't need it.
