    Can't get Airport Extreme to do a hard reset
    Hi all,

    So here's my scenario: I was running a Mac wireless network with two Airport Expresses. One Express, my network extender, died. I got a great deal on a used Airport Extreme w/an antenna. The Express (which was the base station) is now the network extender. Everything is working well, except.....

    I want to reconfigure the Extreme as a hidden network. However, in Network Admin, it prompts me for a password before I can reconfigure. I've done a couple of hard resets, but still get prompted. Did a couple of soft resets (5 minute window, yes?), but still get prompted. Tried the default password "public", no different.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks,
    Monty
