    I just got an airport extreme and set up my first network. I use it so my MacBook can access my G5 PPC files and internet. One of the options for selecting a network is "please turn on my security". I have passwords for my network and guest network. What is that option used for? Thanks, basie

    Not quite sure what your asking but

    1)
    2)Your network should be WPA2.
    I would'nt have a guest network. (YOu can always if you need to have a temporay leased access for your network)

    simple network question

    I think you said "not sure what you're asking"

    I was asking what the option "please turn on my security" is and
    what it's used for.

    It's on my wifi networks list


    thanks,

    Basie

    If you mean the list of networks you can see in the list of available wireless networks.

    Then whats likely happened is that someones has logged into someone else's wireless router due to the owner not changing the default admin password, they've then changed the network name to be "please turn on my security". As a hint to the owner (who likely can no longer connect to the network) to sort out their wireless routers security.

    It's not an option, rather it's the name of someones wireless network.

    That's funny....mean, because the owner probably has no idea why their network isn't working, but funny.
