I realize this question might sound silly, but to me it's an important one and I can't find any Apple documentation to answer it. To those of you that have this base station, do you have the option to block ping requests from the internet? That's an important security feature to me and I didn't see the option in any of the screen shots I've come across in the documentation.

    Not a silly question at all. I and several others have asked the same question with no answer. Until shown otherwise, I take the fact that there is no option in the utility and that there is no answer from technical support, the answer is you cannot enable stealth mode or have an option to do it. In my router before the AEBS, this option worked well and the probe from Shields UP reported all ports as stealth.

    Does this mean that the "deny ping request from WAN" function is turned on by default, even though there is no option to view or change it?

    i think it actually means the opposite... i think.

    it seems crazy that there is no way to do this, besides being generally insecure, it's getting on my nerves because i think this is waking up my ps3. annoying.
