It irritates me how the nomenclature is often confused when it is so simple.

WPA is often equated with TKIP and WPA2 with CCMP, but this is wrong...
A wireless access point advertising WPA may offer TKIP or CCMP or both at the same time. The same is true with WPA2.

TKIP is RC4 based.

CCMP is AES based.

How is this hard to understand or explain? And more importantly, and worse!, why do manufacturers get it wrong?

No matter how secure you think it might be, never trust wireless networks for security. If it's sensitive data, just wait until you can plug into the wall. You never know, so if you're paranoid enough that you truely want all that encryption, just use good ol' ethernet cables.

Now... in a home environment - sure, that's fine - just make sure there's hook-ups available. For businesses though... Ethernet, sure, but having NAC with it is the way to go. It's a pain to setup, but very effective means of truly securing what devices connect where, when and how.
