Interesting, when I used Software Update to look for updates, it doesn't find any. But when I opened AirPort Utility, it informs me of a new firmware update.

It actually seems to have made mine work properly at last. Only took six months for them to get it working as advertised...Halleluia! :)

What was not properly for you? I've had my internet connection go in and out very often, and I'm not sure if it's a problem with AirPort or the ISP. If it's AirPort, hope this fixes it.

Same for me.

I'm having trouble with my USB attached HD. It had been working fine as long as I power on the drive, then power on the AEBS. None of my computers are able to connect to the HD with the 7.2.1 firmware at present. Apparently over at the Apple forums some people are having the same problems.

I'm still testing some things out though. YMMV

looks like Airport now detects many more wireless networks in the neighborhood than just before the update ...

I resolved this problem on my system by trashing the AirPort Utility Preferences at
/Yourusername/Library/Preferences/com.apple.airport.airportutility.plist


Hopefully that helps you out.

The firmware update fixed a problem for me where the base station would "lose" my shared USB printer, if the printer was turned off or unplugged. I had to reboot the base station in order for it to find the printer again.

After the update I can turn the printer off and on, and unplug and replug in the printer, and the base station can see it again without rebooting.

This has been broken since the first update (7.1?) for the base station...

Thanks for that. I was about to do that myself right after I tried one last reboot of the AEBS. The last restart seemed to have worked so far. Just hope it lasts. Thanks

Downloaded it right away. I always used the software updater but decided to check the firmware version I was on first in my Airport Utility. Mere seconds after opening the Utility, it tells me I have an update and asks if I want to install. I just love that I am an Apple fanatic and not a Windows fanatic like so many other idiots. Thanks apple for making it so simple!

Just added the update. It had a few problems after the update. Kept dropping my network but after a computer restart it seems to be stable now. I am hoping it stays that way!!!!:eek:

I like the fact that when I update the firmware on AEBS, it remembers my settings instead of resetting to factory default. My D-Link router does this, my former Linksys and Netgear routers would all forget their settings when I upgrade the firmware. I'd have to remember to save the settings to a file before I perform the upgrade, but if I don't, I'm hosed.

Surely to some of you this isn't much of a news, but this being my first Apple router (I've used Macs for years), it's a pleasant surprise.

So did it fix the airport-freeze-forcing-reboot-thing when transfering large files to an attached usb-drive?

That's the issue that I was having and I'm hoping that the fix resolves it. Unfortunately I won't be able to test this until this evening so will need to wait a while. However, confirmation from others that this is fixed would be nice as it's the only issue that I am having at the moment.

What was not properly for you?
Every time I tried to connect to my USB drive, it would blow my internet connection, park a prefs file full of unicode in my Library and I'd have to fiddle with it for ages to get the drive, printers and network all running at once. Now it connects instantly and painlessly.

Airport not connecting to internet after update

I updated the firmware a couple hours ago and then couldn't connect to the internet! I restarted and unplugged the base station, but no dice. I had to upload the old firmware to get it working again. Anyone else experiencing this?

I don't suppose there will be a firmward update to certify the 802.11n cards in the MacBook Pro, MacBook, etc. to draft 2.0 spec. Or are they already certified?
