Access Airport Extreme router settings over internet
I 've owned a Netgear and a D-Link route before and with those, you could access all your router settings and statuses over the internet
The Login would usuallly be the ip address and the password would be one of your choice.
I can't seem to find any settings to enable this on my Airport Extreme.....any ideas?
Thanks a bunch in advance,

Either way, I don't think you can do that with an AEBS. To access the AEBS, you need to use the Airport Utility application. I have never seen any settings to allow access from a remote location. Nor have I seen any way to access it from a browser.
As for accessing it from a remote location (if that's what you want to do), I don't think that's such a good idea. Routers typically have to "reboot" to get settings changed ... wouldn't that knock you off the connection if you're remote? It would seem like a hassle to do it that way. Also, it's probably a security issue ... but the likelyhood that someone hacks your network is probably small anyways.

...in theory, you could used Remote Desktop to control a mac on the network that you want to configure. For example, say your mom has an Airport router with her Mac Mini that needs to be altered; in theory, you could use a Remote Desktop on your computer to access her computer and configure the router that way.
