I got a new Airport Extreme yesterday. It took several reboots of my cable modem before my Mac AIr & Airport got working right. It set me up a secure network "myname". Now I see an unsecure network "Apple Network 1234x5". 1st time I looked there were 2 unsecured. They weren't there before I installed the new airport. what few wifi's are in the neighborhood are PCs.

Any idea how to remove these?

I always seem to have the weirdest Mac problems

If they were not there before it may be you on the new AEBS there are 2 radios one 2.4 and 5 Ghz they both work simultaneously did you encrypt with a password and set up WPA2 also you may have enabled guest network with no encryption so double check your setup.

I mad sure I didn't set up a Guest account. Yesterday I ended up with a regular account and a 5Gh account both appeared to be secure. It took close to an hour to set up the Extreme. My old Extreme just took minutes.

Finally dawned on me. I also have an Airport Express that's still plugged in. Since it's a "g' not an "n" it won't work with the new Extreme unless I set the Extreme to "g". I gave hard rebooted the Express and left it running. So it created it's own network. Just easier to get a new Express.
