In browsing around, it appears that advice on setting up a wireless network suggests that the most secure setting is WPA2 Personal (rather than the mixed WPA/WPA2 Personal setting).

Do you agree, and why? For learning about this, as well as for confirming that I should set my home network to be WPA2 Personal.

Thanks!

WPA2 is better then a mixed with wpa, due to the fact that it's still running wpa. Wpa2 works with better encryption.
