    Does the MBP with Leopard that anybody knows of supports WPA2-PSK (AES) or WPA-PSK (TKIP)? I know it supports both WPA-PSK and WEP. But would like to enhance the security of the MBP by going to a harder security level. I have a Netgear Rangemax Router. Thanks!

    This maybe hardware related more but was not sure. Thanks!

    I would like this resolved also. I use my MB Pro at work, and it sucks when I have to go to a conference room and take a cable with me. I am not going to down-grade my wifi at work to WEP just so the MB Pro will connect.

    Update: All of a sudden just a few minutes ago, I look up and my wireless is working on my companies WPA/TKIP wireless.

    I don't know how or why, but it is working, I even pulled the network cable, and I am typing this message on the wiress connection.

    Very odd, but I am very happy.

    I don't know why but when using WPA with AES encryption my macbook pro will not connect online. But changing the encryption back to TKIP it does go online. Does macbook pro not support AES or something?
    I'm using new macbook pro (10.5.2) 2.5ghz and have a crappy orange livebox modem/router.
