I recently changed the encryption on 2 access points and 2 bridges from WEP to WPA TKIP.

I was now told that I need to use WPA2 AES  for PCI  compliance reasons.

I am not sure if the aironet 1200's firmware supports WPA2 but I do know they support WPA AES.

At the very least, in order for me to change from WPA TKIP to WPA AES, is all i have to do is change the encryption from the "encryption manager" page?

If the AP supports AES it will support WPA2.

The Cipher needs to be changed from TKIP to AES in the Encryption Manager page.

The WPA version needs to be changed to WPA2 in the SSID Manager page.
