So i have, since WEP was killed at least, been using WPA-PSK (AES) or WPA2 when applicable for all WIFI configurations however today i was on my router and noticed a setting i have never used before WPA without PSK. I have looked on google and wikipedia and such but i cant find a definitive answer to what the difference is between WPA and WPA-PSK? i mean is it just the lack of the Pre-shared key or am i missing something? i have only ever noticed this on my linksys router so i thought it was kind of weird.

If I am not mistaken WPA-Enterprise also allows you to set up not just encryption but a radius server as well.
