541N AP question - should be simple

Why is WPA2 not an option on my devices currently?  They are running firmware 2.0.2 (I know 2.0.4 is out - but I thought the 541N was WPA2 capable out of the box when they shipped).  I see the normal WEP, WPA-Personal and WPA-Enterprise, but not WPA2.  I am sure it is something simple and I am simply missing it - but any pointers would be appreciated.

I don't have a 541N on hand to look at but the data sheet does indicate that it supports WPA-2 Personal (PSK) and WPA-2 Enterprise.

It looks like you can select the WPA version and cipher suite per the administration guide after you select personal or enterprise.

I would recommend using either WPA-TKIP or WPA2-AES and not to mix the versions.
