updated airport utility and checked to see if for new firmware Yep 7.5.2
New update out for the Airport Extreme also! This thread made me check, just out of curiousity.
Airport Express 7.5.2???
Any idea what changes were made?
There's also an update for the N Express, 7.5.2.
I wonder whether this fixes the IPv6 DHCP bug that cropped up in the last version (it worked in the previous one). I'll have to give it a go when I get home
Edit: It's fixed.
Yeah thanks for the info, I've just updated my Time Capsule too.
updating my AEBS here.
Thanks. Updated my AEBS from 7.4.1 to 7.5.2 (7.4.2 never handled ext. disks properly). No problems with 7.5.2, so far.
I'd forgotten about that external disk issue. Finally fixed?
Interesting that they decided to include the older AEBS units like mine (802.11n 10/100) that previously only supported 7.4.x. Probably due to the TKIP update that is required by standards.
I hope so. I'll see when my wife's MBA starts doing TM backups.
I have the original 10/100 802.11N extreme, but the 7.5.2 update doesn't show up. I verified it should be checking for updates, and that I have the 5.5.2 utility.
I am currently on the 7.4.1 version because of the Airport disk issue mentioned above.
Any idea how I can get the 7.5.2 update?
Odd. As I mentioned above it showed up fine for me and seems to be working fine.
I toggled the update options in preferences, and it is downloading now.
Looking forward to have the latest firmware AND have my airport disk working...
I notice that one of the changes in 7.5.2 is that TKIP is removed for n wireless. Will this affect any connecting computers that are using WPA2 Personal TKIP+AES encryption?
Wireless routers have been available with (in increasing security):
WPA (uses TKIP)
WPA/WPA2 mixed mode (uses TKIP or AES)
WPA2 (uses AES only)
Since 2004, all devices support WPA2. The WiFi alliance is getting ready to not certify any equipment that supports either WEP or TKIP... leaving just WPA2 (using AES). This makes wireless networks more secure.
It seems that Apple is getting ready for that transition.
Since WPA2 is not compatible with older (pre-2004) equipment... I would recommend getting rid of all the old stuff so you can use WPA2 on your network... giving it higher security.
