WPA2 AES should be the best combination. AES will also work faster, as it has hardware encryption support.

Also, WPA2 AES is the only encryption that can be used with 802.11N extensions. Keep in mind that WPA/WPA2 only apply to 802.11 wireless. If you use any of the proprietary protocols (like NV2), you need to use their built-in encryption.

If you are using PPPoE, for your clients, you can always enable PPPoE Encryption as another option.
