    You mean on the hub? I got a used hub and had to reset the password. There was a procedure in the documentation. I don't remember what it was; there is a pinhole reset button on the bottom of the unit. It might have been something like hold the reset for 5 seconds. Check your documentation and follow the procedure very carefully, it does work.

    And once you've reset the password, write the password on a sticker and put the sticker on the unit.

    Same problem

    I tried to reset the airport extreme for about 5 seconds. I was advised by apple people to include the word "public" in the password box and the config box for the airport would then open. It did not work.

    Any ideas?

    Did you unplug the power from the unit when you did it? Try doing that and then the reset.
