Sorry, but I find it hard to believe that Cisco APs would not properly
work with TKIP or AES. Cisco APs are of the best quality I have ever
seen. And all the EAP tests in Wi-Fi certifications are run with
either TKIP or AES (Wi-Fi Alliance calls it WPA-Enterprise, or
something like that), so it's widely tested as well.

Do you already know that N800 already supports EAP-TTLS, with TKIP or
AES encryption?

About using wpasupplicant. I think it shouldn't be too hard to use
wpasupplicant on 770 or N800. The wireless extension interface to the
WLAN driver isn't quite up-to-date, so you would have to do some
tweaking there. And of course you would have to bypass all UI, icd and
wlancond components. But it should be doable.
