    hi, I was wondering what is the difference between the password settings for the main network vs base station. I want everyone in my apartment to be able to access the Internet, but don't want anyone to have access to the Airports settings. Thanks in advance!

    The password on the Wireless page of the AirPort utility is the one you want to share. The one on the Base Station page is the one you want to keep private.

    There's a password on the Base Station page, and a password on the Wireless page. The one on the Wireless page is the one that allows people to access the Internet, and the one on the Base Station page is the one that allows settings to be changed.
