By default, yes; so is the Apple AirPort (I think these are all KarlBridge
products in disguise).  And SNMP is enabled by default because that's how 
they're configured.

right, and not only by default - you can _not_ disable snmp on karlbridge
accesspoints (apple airport, rg1000..) (hey, if you'd disable it, you had no
chance changing any setting but flushing the eeprom!).

I just change the password when I configure it for the first time.

first of all, the public snmp-community is still readable, if you change the
password (just not writable anymore), and second, there are tools out there,
which can easily brute-force snmp-communities (ADMsnmp, for example). those
accesspoints don't ''slow-down'' if they're brute-forced, so you can easily
go through a big dic-file :-)

PS: the airport is fun. does anyone know what kind of OS runs on it? i am in
need of some informations regarding this. could get very very interesting.
