Apple on Wednesday released updates to its AirPort utilities for Mac and Windows systems, along with a firmware update for Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme Base Station devices. AirPort Utility 5.5.1 has been improved with a number of bug fixes, helping to prevent problems when importing settings or propagating MAC address control lists using an extended network.
Version 7.5.1 of the Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme firmware corrects several issues related to wireless performance and creating guest networks on the 5GHz band. Apple recommends installing the updated AirPort Utility before adding the firmware update.
The AirPort Utilities are available directly from Apple's Support pages or via Software Update, while the firmware can be updated from within the Utility interface. [AirPort Utility for Windows - 10.7MB], [AirPort Utility for Mac - 10.2MB]
