    I just noticed that although my RT-AC66U (3.0.0.4.260) is set (2.4 GHz) to WPA2-Personal, inSSIDer (2.1.6.1395) reports it as using WPA2-Enterprise. Curious. Is this the router or inSSIDer? Will it cause access/connection problems? I'll find out as I try to connect my various devices to it. Windows (of course) just reports WPA2.

    Aside: Also, a nice touch, it seems that the router is not broadcasting its brand name - it currently shows up in inSSIDer as blank. [Except, of course, the brand can be inferred from the MAC address.]

    Addendum: The router is reported, by inSSIDer, as being WPA2-Personal from a Windows XP Pro SP3 computer and as WPA2-Enterprise from a Windows 7 Pro computer.
