    Hello,
    In the old airport utility, (Snow Leopard and Earlier) there used to be an option to set a percentage of the broadcast range. Meaning you could set the Airport to broadcast at 10%, 25%, 50%, and 100%. I can't seem to find that in the new menu and I'd like to see if my Airport is still running on 10% as that's all I need. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    You can still install the old Airport Utility 5.6 and run it alongside the new Airport Utility. They will coexist in the /Applications/Utilities folder just fine.

    Thanks, but I'm using Mountain Lion and that's incompatible. Is there a slightly newer version maybe?

    I have it on ML and it does run. The issue it ML does not want to let you install it. Try this work around to get it to install.

    Sorry I did not think to mention this issue before. :(

    Not true. I downloaded it and tried to install it. It will not install. Message says it is not compatible with my version of OS -- Mountain Lion.
