Question: How do I log into my airport extreme base station to change password?

I specifically want to know how I get into the device to change the password? Is it directly, or is it through my browser? If so, what do I enter for an address in the browser? Where do I find the correct IP or other address? The extreme base station is vintage around 2011.

You do not use a browser to change the settings.


What operating system are you using on your Mac or PC?


If you have a Mac and do not know, click the Apple icon at the upper left corner of the screen, then click About This Mac.


Post back with the OS X Version number that you see there.

Open Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility

Click the AirPort Extreme icon, then click Edit in the small window that appears


If you want to change the wireless network password, click the Wireless tab at the top of the next window, then edit out the Wireless Password area to enter a new password. Do the same to Verify Password.


Click the Update button at the lower right to save the new settings, and allow a full minute for the AirPort Extreme to restart.

However, if you want to change the Base Station, or device password, click the Base Station tab and perform the same changes.
