Page 2?

Couldn't incremental updates / small bugfixes be relegated to page 2 news? I think page 1 should be reserved for biggies... like big rumors, product announcements, and major updates (like Aperture 2 or Photoshop CS3).

I was hoping the airport update fixed the problems with airport in my office, but alas it dropped a connection an hour ago.

Perhaps the airport sucks? Is anyone else having problems with them?

Beat me to it. But its also C2D iMac's. I got this update, but have no N points around me i can check, if anyone has any they can check let us know
No, N has been around longer then that in Macs (though not supported or documented). I believe that Windows reports that MacBooks were the first to ship with an N chipset, and the iMac C2Ds certainly shipped with them. I think this has nothng to do with N support, something I expect that we will see unleashed at MacWorld with iTV and maybe even Leopard.

Even before this update, I hadn't had any issues with wifi performance on my 17" C2D MBP. Just yesterday I connected, and stayed connected, to 3 different (completely different) wifi locations.

That would mean 1 news item a week.

Could Apple be any more vague about what the Airport Update fixes? They should include some text detailing the specific issues addressed. This is standard practice with any other manufacturer. Sheesh.

I've had zero problems with my Airport wireless, both prior to and after the update. It does sound like the new cards may have some compatibility issues with some particular base stations, though. I'd be curious to hear what model base station(s) (if known) are involved, from the people experiencing the problems.

Actually in my experience what you're describing is quite rare; and I end up dealing with a wide variety of hardware directly and indirectly. What really bugs me is when companies like MS will provide what looks like a detailed list of fixes, which end up having been heavily massaged to the point of obfuscating any real information.

I agree with the sentiment though - I wish it were standard practice for all companies, including Apple, to provide accurate and detailed information regarding their patches.

Hidden SSIDs

This update appears to have fixed the hidden SSID issue I was having on my 15" C2D MBP. Every time I rebooted, shut down, or put the laptop to sleep, it would not rejoin any wireless network with a hidden SSID, but the passwords were still saved in the Keychain. Seems to be working now!

No updates for older hardware? What exactly does the AirPort update fix?
My guess is drivers for the pre N chips in the C2's. The Core Duos have straight up .11G The WIFI hardware is pre N in the C2's. While they aren’t going to be showing up as N hardware in OS X anytime soon its probably just better compatibility with OS X more then anything else.

MS's website is insanely detailed as long as you know where to look.

Perhaps... but stories like this don't make me excited to be a MacRumers.com RSS feed subscriber. I get excited there's a new story, only to find it's the same boring story I've seen on other Mac sites earlier, and already downloaded via Software Update.
