Windows 7 Ultimate x64 x2 + x86 + Windows 8.1 x64 x2
 
 

Strongest for home users - WPA2-AES with a random passkey of 13+ chars and a random non visible SSID, also disable WPS, (Wi-Fi Protected Setup)

WPA-802.1x is best but needs dedicated "RADIUS" server for authentication - not for the feint hearted
