I need to configure my wireless network for my desktop. However I am not sure what encryption protocol I should use. Can somebody please let me know if I should use WPA-TKIP, WEP (128 bit), GZIP, WPA-AES or any other?

I would really appreciate your help.

WEP and WPA-TKIP are being discontinued due to security vunerabilities. Currently WPA-AES is the only wide-spread secure encryption scheme for WiFi.
