I have been searching the forums for threads that would indicate how I can use the iPad airport utility to actually access and or change the settings of my airport extreme and airport express. Both of which have been configured already with my computer.


When I access the iPad app, all I get are the icons showing my network. When I choose any of the devices, all I get is a window indicating things like "IPaddress", "LAN address" , "serial #'s", "version", "network", & "wireless clients". To which none of those options actually allow me change anything.


Am I missing something? Any help and advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    You may have likely found them by now, but most of the basic setup features are there.


    If you can't find them, can you list a few things that you would like to change, for example(s)?
