Setup - Printers
There are no submenus for the Printers section. This selection shows connected USB printers, if any, and provides the option to share the printer on the WAN port and advertise it using Bonjour.
The Disks section controls access and file sharing of attached USB drives.

The Disks submenu shows currently connected USB drives, with the option of disconnecting users prior to unplugging the drive.
Figure 16: File sharing submenu
The File Sharing submenu allows you to enable/disable file sharing, choose access to the disk (base station password, disk password, or user list), and set guest control. As with printer sharing, you can choose to share the disk on the WAN port and to advertise it using Bonjour.
The Advanced section has a collection of advanced features that you can configure. The AirPort Extreme supports SNMP, and optionally, SNMP on the WAN port. Syslog, with eight levels of reporting, is also supported for log reporting. A second-level menu lets you view and export the AirPort’s log; view attached wireless clients, along with their signal, noise and rate information; and view a DHCP client list.

You can also see signal strength, noise and rate information for attached clients.

Other Advanced submenus include Bonjour, which allows you to configure Bonjour to allow computers on the Internet to connect to the base station, IPV6, which allows configuration of IPV6 in Tunnel mode, Link-local or node modes, and IPV6 Firewall, which provides limited configuration of the IPv6 firewall. I did not test any of the IPV6 capabilities.
