The procedure depends on the operating system that you have installed on your computer.
If you have a Mac, and do not know which operating system you are using, click the Apple icon at the upper left of the screen. Click About This Mac and post back with the OS X Version that you see there.

Sorry, I am confused. Did you figure out how to do this, or do you still need some help? We need the OS X Version you have on your Mac if you need more tips.

I did find the information I was looking for in the Airport utilities folder. Knew it was somewhere but needed a hint. I think at this point I am good to go, just need to wait until I can update the network as someone is using it. If not I'll be back. Need to change the name to something other than my original so it is not confused.
Thanks for responding.

Thanks, If you are using the Lion or Mountain Lion operating system on your Mac, open AirPort Utility and click on the AirPort Extreme icon, then click Edit.
Click the Wireless tab and the Guest Network info is in the center of the window. Just edit out / backspace out the name that is there and type in a new name that you want to use.
Click Update and the AirPort Extreme will restart in about 30 seconds.
If you are using Leopard or Snow Leopard on the Mac, open AirPort Utility, click on the AirPort Extreme and click Manual Setup. There is a Guest Network tab next to the Wireless tab. Enter the changes there and click Update to save them and the AirPort will restart.
