How to access AirPort Extreme

Hello, my school's network has had recent trouble with
their AirPort Extreme wireless access point. According to
many sources, the AirPort Extreme allows only up to 50
clients to connect at a time. However, this is not the direct
problem. I cannot get any Windows machine to access the
wireless network. Furthermore, each Windows machine
(mostly laptops) get the Automatic Private Addressing
fault, which means there seems to be a problem with the
DHCP server assigning dynamic addresses to the
computers, BUT the iMacs and the iBooks at the school
seem to connect fine to the AirPort Extreme wireless
access point.

If you have any ideas to this problem, let me know.
Otherwise, I need to know how to access the AirPort
Extreme, so I can change the settings.

hello, the setting you need to change are not on the airport extrem, they are in the pc, call 1-800 my apple and tell them that you need to hook up a pc to the airport extrem, there may be a charge for this.
but just so u know the airport setting are in the app folder under utitlies, Airport admin or airport set up ast.
your best bet is to call apple and they will walk you through it, there are settings in the pc that need to be turned on, and i forget what they r, sorry

too little tech info such as firmware on ABS, what kind of
password/encryption you are using.

this shoud be easy peasy to set up!

OK. take off any passwords/encryption. it SHOULD start
working straight away. keep the ABS's name short. ie 8
characters for the purpose of testing n troubleshootin'

once you're logged into the ABS, click on the "Base
Station" menu and select 'Network Equivalent Password"
yup that's the equivalent one for Windows machines.
