WPA2's stronger than WPA's stronger than WEP, and AES is stronger than TKIP (though both are only as good as the passphrase you use).
As for RADIUS, google is your friend. Needs a RADIUS server, and is probably more complicated than you'd ever need.

WEP encryption is software based where WPA and WPA2 are done in hardware, so thats why it probably feels faster.

Make sure you create a nice, strong and long key!

You should be aiming for a 63 characters/504 bits key like this:

Don't use WEP as people like me (wardriving) can hack it pretty damn quickly even if their is no traffic (We can force the router to generate packets)
WPA is fine however.
