I an yet another who can't get my Mac with OS 10.3.2 to connect to our Cisco Corp. WLAN. If we change the TKIP setting from "Cisco" to None, it works, but I thought that the Airport should support TKIP.

I would hope that someone from Apple or Cisco would address this issue. Especially Apple, who could greatly benefit from adding more Macs to corporate environments.

I know it hasn't been long since the previous post, but has anyone had any success?

    Many months later, we're having this problem; we didn't disable TKIP to test, but I can associate with WEP networks from the same Cisco Aironet 1200 APs.

    Anyone heard anything about this? The WEP networks in this building are going away in a couple of months...

    My understanding is that when you turn TKIP off you're essentially turning off WPA encryption. I logged a TAC job with Cisco and they basically cannot confirm or deny the compatibility of Apple extreme clients on cisco base stations. I've also logged a job with Apple and can let you know of the outcome...
