    Well, my brother just got the Airport Express. He's being a little bit greedy on who gets to control the password that allows configuration of the airport express. I downloaded the Airport Utility and he's starts getting pissed at how I don't need it. But since I'm a gamer, I need to port forward some games. He isn't allowing me to get the password to access the Airport Express Utility. . He gave me the one to use the internet. But not the one to access its utilities. So I was hoping this forum had the answer. Do you guys know of anyway(s) to get around this?

    ~Greatly Appreciated.
    Ugh totally for got. I'm using Windows XP

    1. Go to System Preferences

    2. Go to Network

    3. Click on the Airport tab on the left-hand side

    4. Click Advanced located on the bottom right of the window

    5. In the Preferred Networks, Select the name of the one you have

    6. Double-click the name of your Network

    7. Click Allow on the pop-up window that should appear

    8. A Password box should be shown, click the check box "SHOW PASSWORD" to discover the password of the Network

    This method worked in my school last year. I no nothing about hacking, but I discovered this method and it worked to reveal my school's password to the internet networks.
