Apple has released its AirPort Admin Utility for Windows systems preview.

The software requires Microsoft Windows 2000 or XP, and is an unsupported beta version of the AirPort network-administration tool for the AirPort Extreme Base Station and AirPort Base Station (dual-Ethernet only). It does not work with the original AirPort Base Station.

AirPort Admin Utility for Windows systems preview includes the latest AirPort Extreme Base Station firmware (ADD LINK).

Apple warns that the beta software is English-only and may have "varied" results when used with non-English versions of the Windows operating system.

The company is also hosting the AirPort for Windows Discussion Forum. This is a "user-supported discussion panel where users assist each other with their AirPort for Windows questions", Apple says.
