    This is for Airport Utility 6.0.

    Open Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility

    Click on the AirPort Express icon, then click Edit

    Click the Wireless tab at the top of the next window

    Backspace/edit out the existing Wireless password and enter a new password

    Do the same to Verify Password

    Click Update to save the new settings and allow 40-45 seconds for the Express to restart


    Tip....it is always a good idea to change the name of the wireless nework as well. If you do not do this, your computer stores the settings for the same wireless network with two separate passwords. As you might imagine, this can create confusion and conflicts.
