WPA TKIP Cracked

Well, hell.

I caught on Slashdot today that WPA using TKIP has been compromised. At the moment, only communication from the router to the host is vulnerable, but I can't imagine that it will stay that way for long.

I'm really considering moving my wireless APs to the external network, as opposed to the internal access they have now. That would require anyone on wireless to use a VPN, which has superior encryption anyway, I believe.

Any thoughts?
