  2. That is not how WPA-PSK works, or put another way any AP that did what you
    just wrote would not pass WiFi interoperability testing. The AP and the STA
    (in this case the laptop) send information elements to each other stating
    what level of encryption that they support and they agree on the highest
    level of security that they both support, in this case that would be TKIP.
    By the way, AES is not tested for interoperability in WPA; just in WPA2.

  3. The implementations in most WPA (versus WPA2) residential routers
    seems to be that the AES setting is exclusive and AES only. I've also
    suspected that only the TKIP setting is tested even if an AES setting
    is present on the device.
