Questions about WPS

Hi guys,

so I started looking into WPS support and I do have some questions.

Does WPS suppose to support access points that are configured with WEP?
I have seen some APs with WEP encryption enabled and still containing
the WPS IE in its scan results. Seems the IE is cut down to version
details only, but never less the IE is present.

Will WPS work also with IEEE 802.1x / EAP? Or is it just PSK key
management only. So is WPS a WPA-Personal only feature or would it also
apply to WPA-Enterprise?

What is actually the clients job when it comes to credentials? Do we
have to remember them? How does this work with reboots and automatic
reconnects?

Regards

Marcel
