Linksys WMP600N Wireless Card Specs

On this wireless card's newegg page, it says that the WMP600N "Supports up to 128-bit encryption security."

Can I assume that it does not support WPA2 AES Security?

I'm looking for a good, dual-band PCI Wireless N card that runs in Vista 32-bit that's compatible with the Linksys E300 Router.

If not Linksys, any other suggestions?

It will support all these security types:

WEP, WPA & WPA2 Personal, WPA & WPA2 Enterprise

It will work fine for what you are looking for

What I meant to ask was does this card support AES, which is 256-bit security. The description says only up to 128-bit security, so I'm not sure if that's referring to one of the other wireless security modes, like WEP.

That's my source of confusion. Can someone who has this card elaborate? Thanks for the reply, though, Emerald.

If it doesn't mention AES it doesn't do it.

Does your router support AES, anyway ?

Yes the router supports AES. Another computer on the home network using the Linksys E3000 connects using WPA2 with AES, although I don't know if it's using 128 or 256 bits of encryption or not.
