Status on N speeds with Allow Weak Encryption

Hi,

The N speeds are only reachable with either totally open SSIDs or with AES encryption?

Does "Allow weak encryption" allow the high speeds on all availible encryptions?

Naturally, I know it's NOT recommended to use weak encryption, but I just wanted to get clarification on the matter :)

The N standard only allows Encryption types of "Open" and "AES". Allow weak encryption allows TKIP and WEP, but it can only connect at 54 megs when using that.

I would also add that this is client dependent as well. If the client was written to follow the standard it may not even attempt higher speeds.
