How to disable AirPort Disk access for the guest network?
I have the latest AirPort Extreme base station (MC340LL/A) and have a 2TB hard drive connected to it. It's working beautifully, just as Apple advertised. I set up a guest network, so I don't have to give out my private network's password. That also works as advertised. But now for the tricky part. What I don't want is for guest network users to see the AirPort Disk. And yet I see no option in the AirPort Extreme setup software that allows me to disable AirPort Disk access for the guest network. Yes, I can disable access for the guest account on my computer, but not for the guest network. Of course I have set a good, strong password for the disk, but I'd really like for it not to be seen at all, when not connected to my private network.
Does anybody have any clues? Any ideas, hints? Alternative places to look?

Thanks, I guess.
But the thing is, I know how to set up AirPort Disks, as I've already done so. My question was specifically how to disable access to said disks for the guest network (and not the guest account). Of course my disks are password protected, but as this is a rather crowded neighborhood where I don't even know who lives two doors down, I'd rather not have somebody I don't know even see my disks when being somehow connected to my guest network.
And again, I've set up a guest network so that I don't have to give out my private network's password. I've done so as network safety is only as strong as the person you give out your password to.

I get it and here is what to do
1. Open the Airport Utility app
2. Click on the Guest Network tab
3. Either unclick "Enable Guest Network" or add a password.
