Airport Utility interface appears to have changed recently.  Where is the check box to close/open a TC WiFi network?

    Yes, v6 in lion is a toy cf the earlier version.. but Apple released the Lion version of 5.6 utility so you can actually configure the TC.. rather than look at pretty network pictures.

    The close feature doesn't really protect you anymore. It's gone obsolete like WEP. So in this case, I don't really blame the engineers.

    Anyone who really wants to get into your network, is going to pick up your SSID pretty much right away, regardless if it's closed or not. What closing SSID does however, is give you a nuissance when having to connect your own devices to your own network. So why bother?

     

    Please don't over-value this feature, it has gone the way of mac-Mail bounce.
