    Every tiem I try to install the newest Airport update I get this error message:

    Make sure you have permission to write to /Users/evannass/Library/Caches/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate, then try again.


    I went to that folder and all the permissions are "Read & Write" so I dont know what else to do. Not to mention that I havent changed anything ever and this is the first time its happening....

    Go to yourHD/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility and then Repair Permissions.

    If that doens't work then go to www.apple.com/support and find the AirPort Software update and download it manually.

    I agree with mklos - you'd be surprised how many things a good old "verify/repair permissions" can fix. :cool:
