    Apple updates AirPort Utility, Time Capsule firmware, AirPort Base Station




    Several updates to software surrounding AirPort and Time Capsule have been sent out by Apple today, each of them coming to users through Software Update. The first update is to 802.11n AirPort Express, 802.11n AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule models – in it, users get an issue fixed for wireless performance amongst other smaller issues. The other update is for AirPort Utility 6.0 for Mac OS X Lion, it being an update for you to more effectively manage your Wifi network and AirPort base stations galore.



    AirPort Utility 6.0 for Mac OS X Lion will bring you the power of being able to manage your Wi-fi network and all manner of AirPort base stations, those being of course your Time Capsule, AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Express. You’ll be able to change base station and network settings, manage advanced features including wireless channels, security modes, and more.



    The AirPort Base Station and Time Capsule Firmware is being upgraded to version 7.6.1 and will allow you to get remote access to an AirPort disk or a Time Capsule hard drive with your own iCloud account. This upgrade will be to your Firmware and should be done only AFTER you grab AirPort Utility 5.5.3. Additionally, you should have AirPort Utility 6.0 at least (this being the other part of the upgrade) as well as Mac OS X Lion version 10.7.2 or later so that you might work with iCloud. Update all of this via your Software Update screen under the apple in the upper-left of your screen.

    Apple Introduces Redesigned AirPort Express




    Apple today quietly introduced a redesigned AirPort Express wireless base station, drawing on the design of the Apple TV set-top box and introducing simultaneous dual-band 802.11n connectivity for increased performance.

    The new AirPort Express supports simultaneous dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi. That means it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time. So no matter which band your wireless devices use, they’ll automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest possible performance.
    The redesigned AirPort Express continues to be offered at $99.

    If you happen to own one of Apple's AirPort or Time Capsule products, there are a few updates waiting for you today. Between a combination of updates to AirPort Utility 6.2 for Mac, AirPort Base Station and Time Capsule Firmware Update 7.6.3 and the universal iOS AirPort Utility 1.2, users will now have the ability to extend a guest Wi-Fi network configured with multiple AirPort Base Stations as well as add a WPS-capable Wi-Fi printer. The release notes also include "improved international support," but we'll leave it to our overseas readers to confirm if that one is true.

    Latest AirPort firmware update breaks IPv6 tunneling



    Last week's AirPort/Time Capsule firmware update is breaking IPv6 tunneling for some users, according to complaints on Apple's support forums. Tunneling allows IPv6 traffic to flow through IPv4 links. Without fixed firmware, the glitch could prevent some sites and services from connecting through Apple routers.

    Previous AirPort firmware updates have sometimes broken tunneling, making it likely that Apple is already working on a new one to solve the problem. In the meantime, however, the only solution appears to involve downgrading. People can access the option through AirPort Utility; the process works differently in the Mac and Windows versions of the software.
