    Ok, I went to buy an Airport Extreme today. I live in Calgary, Canada. I called a bunch of different retailers - no Airport Extremes. Even our faithful Apple Store in Market Mall had none. I've never seen them out of anything! I did find one eventually at a store, but this is strange...

    Anybody else having troubles getting an Extreme? Updates soon? I would think there's nothing to update at this point.

    And 2-4 days on apple store online, whereas time capsule and other products are 24 hours.

    Odd--what's to update, other than a price drop? The TC would be easier to explain because of larger storage for the same price . . .

    I dont see how they could update them, they already have N wireless, and thats the technology for the next 5 years, and they wouldn't be thinking about putting a WIMAX transmitter inside because it wouldn't fit in a car. I think they probably just have a quality control issue or production shortage of them, its not uncommon for Apple.

    They can add duel band,

    2.4GHz and 5.4GHz in one router.

    I would really like that

    Good call!

    I wonder if guest networking is a firmware/software update, or available only on the new ones.
