My Wii works perfectly with TKIP or CCMP. I can't see how it's any
harder to set-up than WEP.

The Wii also had WPA from the beginning, the only change has been to add
AOSS support for Buffalo router compatibility. I hope they extend this
to generic WPS before too long.

The only reason I can think of to prefer WEP is if you have a Nintendo
DS or some other (non-free) device that can't (or won't) support
