I'm no longer able to save wpa2 personal encryption on 5ghz network after this 2.00.01 upgrade. It allows me to enable security mode, but the settings revert back to Disabled after saving. Has anyone else exerienced this?

After all firmware upgrades you are to hard reset the router and reconfigure it back from scratch. Was this done?

I reset it and it worked for a while, but the option goes away whenever I disable broadcast SSID. Anyone else having this problem?

Do not disable the SSID broadcast as it causes problems with devices connecting as you have seen. It does nothing for security. Always leave SSID broadcast enabled.

I haven't seen any issues with devices connecting. I've always kept broadcasting disabled with no issues. Anyone know why this firmware has lost the ability to save security info with the "WPA-TKIP/WPA-AES" option selected? I was able to get around it by chosing AES encryption over WPA-TKIP/WPA-AES. I was then able to save the SSID passphrase after doing this. At this point I'm just curious if anyone has experienced this issue with this firmware.

I had exactly the same problem, and it seems to be the Network mode of the 5 GHz that is involved : I wanted to force it to be "Wireless-N only" and I encountered this problem, so I put back "Mixed" and everything is ok, now I can activate and save the security mode for the 5 GHz.
Hope this help.

Oh yeah, that's gotta be a bug...Mine was OK, and (working on the Wireless-N Only mode) after the upgrade, but when I made a change to the 2.4 wireless channel, the 5GHz security disabled itself. I switched to Mixed mode, and now I can enable 5GHz security.

Thanks for the confirmation. Hopefully there will be a fix for this soon. (unless cisco is hoping this forces a router upgrade purchase)
