    Indeed. No web interface and you must use the Apple utility to configure the router. Apple has had it like that with older Airport products as well.

    Also rather insecure. At my uni they had airports serving wifi, and a mac-using friend saw he could have completely owned them with that Apple utility (IIRC by uploading a new firmware which would reset it).

    Perhaps it could be secured and they just didn't, didn't look more into it.
