    Can anyone tell me how I might enable only the Airport Extreme wireless guest network, and leave the standard wireless network disabled? The Airport Utility does not appear to provide this functionality. Thanks.

    How about just create the main wireless network with a dummy name and make it closed/hidden so no one uses it?

    Is the AE behind a router/modem? It needs to be the router/modem in order for the "guest" network option to appear.

    If not, you can "bridge" your router/modem so that the AE can become the router/modem (essentially). I just found this out myself recently.

    If you have the AE with N dual band, enable the 5Ghz band. I recommend enabling that if you have Wireless N compatible devices.

    Good luck.
