linksys wireless-g kit with WPA possible?

I have the Linksys Wireless G Network Kit which includes the WRK54G router/switch and the WPC54G PCMCIA network adaptor. It appears I've successfully configured the router and network card to use WPA-TKIP encryption. However when I contacted Linksys support to verify if my configuration was indeed possible I received two differenct answers. One from the online chat support team (who said I was OK) and one from email support (who said my router doesn't support WPA-TKIP yet). My machines are using Windows XP SP1 with all the latest SP1 patches. So the question is, do I have the WPA support from Microsoft and do I have the WPA support within the Linksys firmware and driver updates? I know I have the latest Linksys firmware and driver support.

Anyone else trying to use WPA with the router and card mentioned in this post?

Yes, the WRT54G and the WPC54G supports WPA-TKIP. If you have successfully configured your equipment to use this, then it doesn't really matter what someone else says can or cannot be done...

Just wanted to make sure. The Linksys support site is very confusing as to which firmware, drivers, and patches are required for certain products.
