  • The "Authentication Method" to WPA-Auto-Personal, and "WPA Encryption" to TKIP+AES settings allow for better compatibility if you have a mix of newer and older devices to support.
  • I quickly set up PPTP with MPPE-128 bit encryption to connect from my mac and pc and I set up OpenVPN, which wasn't so quick as it required some tweaking.
