That sounds weird. I presume you have gone the IT route, trying out a reset, reinstall, delete and add Macs and all that?
I hope you don't mean of all the OS' on my computers and devices, but rather just the AirPort Extreme.
And yes. I imagine it's just this stupid new AirPort Utility (since now that I have a device with which it's compatible I can comment on its use) which is, in every respect, completely and utterly unusable. Yes, it added the ability to see a list of the current connections (better than the old one, which wouldn't show you anything of that sort), but what good is that when I can't do anything with them?
Had to use the old one to even set MAC address access control… (EDIT: Now I can both see and add MAC addresses to the list of approved machines via the new AirPort Utility, but I could not before doing it in the old one. )
If NOTHING else, I'd like the text list comprised of ".local" names, MAC addresses, AND local IPs to be, you know, just the NAMES of the computers and devices involved. I don't have the memory to remember actually important things; I can't be spending hours memorizing the MAC addresses of my devices to know what's on and where, and using that to know when I don't recognize a MAC address, leading me to think there's someone on my network!
