Apple have completely revamped the Airport Utility used to setup and configure their Airport devices. Now at version 6, it sports a completely new graphical interface and "hides" much of the complexity of configuring and managing a WiFi network.
In this episode, Todd Olthoff explores the new user interface and shows you how to dig in to find the information you need, and how to setup and extend your WiFi network.
If you're unfamiliar with some of the basic principles and terminology used, Todd takes you through the various configuration screens and explains all!
This full tutorial includes sections on:

On the face of it, Sticky Notifications is a very simple application. It allows you to create your own "Sticky" notifications in Mountain Lion, or in Lion (using Growl). Want a quick reminder on screen, Just click on the menubar icon or use a keyboard shortcut to create it in a flash.
Sticky Notifications also has integration with many other aspects of your Mac such as Automator and System Services, as well a full URL scheme to enable integration with Alfred and Launchbar
I've covered "tagging" files and folders before, but never managed to cover one of the most useful application - Leap.
So this week, I've asked Todd to take a look at Leap, and show some of the concepts behind this unique way of tagging, searching and organising your files and folders.
Time for a Mac Montage show this week.
How to add a signature to your emails - One of the most requested topics! I've previously looked at using TextExpander but Mail within Lion allows you to do it all.
Markdown Services for OSX - Use Markdown? You need these essential services.
Podcasts App for iOS - Most Mac users also listen or watch podcasts on their iOS devices. This section takes you through the basics.
A new type of tutorial this week - an App Update show.
Invariably, the applications I cover on ScreenCastsOnline get updated over time. New features and new capabilities are regularly introduced by developers.
So this week's tutorial brings you up to speed on updates to three great applications - Aperture, TextExpander & Moom
Move and Zoom your windows on your Mac, easily and quickly using your Mouse, Trackpad or Keyboard.
Moom is a great application that integrates seamlessly with OSX to give you complete mastery of your environment. Move and resize windows, move them out of the way or even send them to different monitors.
You can even create "Window Layout Snapshots" to allow you to postion your favourite application windows just as you like them, then store for future use. With a simple command, all your windows will reposition themselves exactly as you saved them. You can even set automatic triggers based on your screen resolution or available monitors.
Now that iOS5 has a great notification service, isn't a pity that OSX doesn't! All is not lost, however, as you can add a system wide notification service into OSX, with the installation of Growl.
Even better, application events captured by Growl can now be forwarded to your iOS device using Prowl.
This week, a greatly misunderstood, free utility to allow you to customise your OSX desktop - GeekTool
Create "Geeklets" to echo the contents of textual log files, display multiple images or even run Unix scripts, directly on your Desktop.
