    I need some help. I have a new Airport Extreme which was set up on my older Windows 7 machine, while I was waiting for my new iMac, which I ordered May 9th. I am getting my new iMac tomorrow and retiring my older machine. I had setup Airport Utility on my Windows Machine. When I switch to the iMac will the settings that I setup still be there? When I setup Airport Utility on the new iMac, will I have to do the settings over again, or all I have to do is type in Password that I created and it will be there? I have a lot of transferring tomorrow and I want to make sure that this is the easy part.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The settings of the router are stored on the router itself so you've nothing to worry about tomorrow. AirPort Utility is merely a program to grant your computer, be it Mac or Windows, access to the router's settings to view and change them. Enjoy your iMac :)
