    I am about to buy a used airport extreme, the new one with simultaneous dual bands, but how can I tell if the person is lying to me and selling me the older version?

    I looked on the internet and both versions are visually identical. He has nothing set up so I can only inspect it visually. Any thoughts would be great...thanks!!

    The units have the model number stamped on the bottom, that's how you tell. When u go into the airport utility it also is a bit different.

    Yes. When a new one comes out, it will have a different number.
