    I can't reconfigure my airport express. The admin utility doesn't recognize my password - tried all possible passwords, but this was set up a few years ago, maybe I forgot one. What to do?

    It seems that the airport has been hijacked. I'm getting slowdowns and letters missing on web pages on my wired desktop (old emac). When I unplug the airport, the problems disappear. My wireless computers (2 ibooks and a later emac) are just slow. Maybe I should just talk to my neighbour.

    Is there a paper clip-sized hole on the Express? I know that there is on my AirPort Extreme. If there is, stick a paper clip in there to reset the base station so that you can reconfigure it from your computer.

    Then put a password on it (the router, not the network) so that no one can reconfigure anything without you knowing.
