I'm looking for a link to download the 7.4.1 Airport Base Station firmware that doesn't involve using apple's 'airport utility' program. I've updated to 10.5.7 and the nice people at apple care have informed me that my old airport extreme (b/g) and airport express (b/g) are now completely useless because 10.5.7 is not backwards compatible with the old airports. I have trouble connecting to and keeping a wireless signal. What apple has essentially done with their benign 'airport utility' program is control access to the new firmwares (7.4.x). In the past they have issued the firmware updates publicly with a link to a .dmg file. Now you need to run the 'airport utility' to verify you have a new airport (802.11.n) before they let you download the airport base station firmware. I think this is just a ploy to make people like me toss out their old hardware and buy new airports. I've fallen off the back of the treadmill and I don't want to toss out perfectly good hardware b/c I cannot get access to the software update like every new user can. Can someone help find me the firmware update?
