I'm an idiot. I forgot the password for my network and my hardware... I'm online, so it's not a real hurry. I guess I'd need it to add another computer.

    Hi, Gregle4,

    go to airport admin. utility (in "Applications>Utilities),
    select your network, choose "configure", and you can set a new password.

    Hope this solves your problem

    Hi Thomas,
    I have the same problem as Gregle4. When I go to "configure", as you suggest, I get a window asking for my password. One of our computers was logged off and I need to get it back on the wireless. Any other ways I can reset it?
    Thanks so much,

    september15 , Welcome to the discussion area!

    Performing a hard reset on the AirPort Extreme base station (AEBS) will reset the password.
