AirPort Extreme, Time Capsule [802.11ac] Firmware Update
Apple released its sixth generation AirPort Extreme Base Station and fifth generation Time Capsule models at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference. Although users welcomed these 802.11ac network devices, there were problems, several of which have now been squished.
• AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule Firmware 7.7.2 (free)
— For AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule base stations with 802.11ac
— Addresses an issue that prevents a USB hard drive connected to an AirPort Extreme from appearing as an available disk in Time Machine
— Resolves an issue that may intermittently cause a loss in WAN connectivity
— Resolves an issue that may result in a network loop
The USB hard drive issue is perhaps the biggest outstanding issue addressed — what, if anything, does Apple still need to fix?
And, in case you missed and/or ignored it, Apple released AirPort Utility 1.3.3 for iOS (free) back on November 4, which added 64-bit support to the app.
