AES clients can't connect to WPA2-Mixed Mode

We run a ZD1200 with 6 networks and 20 AP's. I keep running into issues with AES devices not being able to connect with our network in Mixed Mode (AES+TKIP). The only solutions I've come up with are to change the client network settings to TKIP, or clone the network and change the algorithm on the clone to AES. Either is ideal when we have guests in our facility...

Is there a reason you are using mixed mode? Do you have TKIP only clients on the network? The reason I ask is that TKIP drastically reduces the capacity and increases the load of the AP.

What are the chances of running into a TKIP user?
