Re: Apple Devices

The thing here is that many devices that have settings for WPA-Personal or WPA-Enterprise uses WPA/TKIP, WPA2-Personal or WPA2-Enterprise uses WPA2/AES which is the standard.

Devices like windows and android will try AES first and then TKIP, but Apple devices are strict and will not use non standard encryption. In some cases this works fine with other vendors or home wireless but doesn't in a Cisco wireless environment:)
