I cannot add a Wi-Fi guest network. Gone to Utilities>Airport Utilities and all I get is an image/browser of my Airport Extreme. Looking for the browser window which has the title Wireless but cannot find anywhere. What am I doing wrong?

Open AirPort Utility. The first screen looks something like this:

Click on the AirPort Extreme and another screen will appear. Click Edit, then the window with the Wireless tab will appear.

If you do not see these screens, you will need to start over and configure your AirPort again.

    Open AirPort Utility

    Click on the AirPort Extreme icon

    Click Edit

    Click the Wireless tab at the top of the window

     

    IF.....you have a compatible modem.....the option to enable the Guest Network will appear. Name the network and assign a password and confirm.

     

    Click Update to save any changes and the AirPort will restart in 30 seconds

     

    If the Guest Network option does not appear, you have a modem/router, not a simple modem. Contact your service provider and ask them for a simple modem if you want to enable this feature.

    Bob - Quick explanation

    Bought a new Digital TV> Messed with the Wi-Fi settings through the TV and had to reset Airport Extreme to Factory Settings. Initially had Guest Network which has now dissapeared.

     

    Looked for Edit button after pressing airport extreme and it is not there. I just seemy initial network and all the neighbors. Am I searching for the edit button correctly.

     

    I also see - Join other networks, Create Network, Open Network Preferances...

    Bob,

     

    Got it. I can't believe that I never saw the edit button and I now feel a little silly. It's all set up now.

    Many Thanks - James
