Authentication Type - Linksys

I just got a Linksys Wireless router a few day ago. I'm slowly but surely figuring it out. I can't find some info on the Linksys website so I figured I would ask here:

On the Advanced Wireless Settings page there is an option for Authentication Type. What exactly does this do? If gives me a choice of Auto and Shared Key. It simple terms, what's the difference between Auto and Shared Key? I know what a key is.
