    Just wanted you to know there is a way to access the old style Airport Utility menu. Hold down 'alt' and double click on your Airport Base Station in Airport Utility.

    Thanks for the hint!
    Alas, I reckon, it's not quite the APU 5.x style what's shown.
    It has merely added pane labeled Summary and still lacks the controls for shared printer.

    sweet. I gotta try that this evening. Does it give you menus for signal strength graphs and the other diagnostic stuff?

    Nope. That is located in HD/System/Library/CoreServices/Wireless Diagnostics.app

    I tried this, but I do not see the options for configuring syslog, time servers, or snmp.

    You can't. It's just a meaningless hidden menu.

    Thanks. I knew that :) I was trying to point out that it is not the missing menu from AU 5.6.x, where you can configure those things and more.
