I want to change the password for my airport network, but can't find a menu that lets me do it. I have it set to automatically connect my personal computer, so I never even have to type in the password, but my roommates want to connect to it and I want to set a new password to give to them. Do I have to create a new network and junk my old one?

1) Open Airport Admin Utility
2) Select your Base Station
3) Select the "Change Password" button
4) Follow the instructions.

Thanks, it'd been so long I'd forgotten the admin utility was there.
