How to connect to a WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK wireless network
Authored by: r-spx on Apr 19, '12 04:00:21PM

WPA Personal = WPA-PSK (and WPA2-PSK).

Apple prefers to use the term WPA Personal, which is probably what you saw in the Airport documentation.

From Wikipedia:

"WPA-Personal: Also referred to as WPA-PSK (Pre-shared key) mode, it is designed for home and small office networks and doesn't require an authentication server. Each wireless network device authenticates with the access point using the same 256-bit key generated from a password or passphrase."
