Apple Launches New AirPort And Time Capsule Firmware, Airport Utility

Apple’s networking gear just got a huge firmware update, including the AirPort Express, Extreme and Time Capsule routers. The firmware update will appear in the update section of the Airport Utility application for anyone with an 802.11n based router. In addition to the firmware update, Apple’s AirPort Utility also got an update to version 6.2.

According to the release notes, the update brings the following changes:

  • Extend the Guest Wi-Fi network for a network configured with multiple AirPort Base Stations
  • Ability to add a WPS capable Wi-Fi printer
  • Support for additional countries

Additionally, the AirPort Utility update brings with it the ability to add all the features released today in the firmware update. I’ve had some wonky Wi-Fi problems lately with my MacBook Air and connection to my AirPort Extreme. I’m not sure if Apple squashed the bug, but from the sounds of it there were a number of bug fixes put into place.

Get your update on.
