Beware! If you're not having any problems with your connections/network then don't update. I updated to 6.3 and 3 days later my Airport Express (Taiwan manufacture) was dead. Coincidence? Perhaps, but I'm not the only person this has happened to. chx

I also am getting the -8 error when attempting to install Airport Express Firmware Updater 6.3, though the Base Station is working - I am using it to write (and submit) this review.

This update breaks support for the Brother HL-1440 printer. If you use that printer, beware, keep a copy of the older firmware handy or do not install this 6.3 update.

I kept getting a -8 error (unable to communicate with station) when trying to update the express I use to extend the range of my extreme base station. Can anyone out there explain (I'm updating from V6.0 to V6.3)

Seems to work just fine, and the nagging warning about people not being able to access my base because of wireless configuration is now gone. It still misses the ability in portforwarding to write ports from and to in the same field, instead of as now where each port has to be in its own field. Very time consuming!

Ahhh, nice, my Brother HL-1440 finally workes again with 6.1 firmware :) I had to downgrade to 6.0 because of that, and that made me lose the ability to use WPA on WDS. Great work apple!

Anyone know if an AirPort Express can act as a wireless bridge for connecting to a PlayStation 2? If possible, I'd like to replace a WET11 with an AE and also have added benefit of AirTunes.

This firmware (6.1) does not support WPA with non Airport wireless routers! This forces you to use the less secure WEP. If Apple are using the WPA prototcol correctly I don't see why then can't make it work! I'm considering returning my airport express becuase of this.

Nooooooooo! This has never happened to me before, but an Apple update has actually made it worse than before the update. I updated the Airport Express 6.1 firmwareupdate and then the AE 4.1 software and now I can't use my Brother HL-1440 anymore. It does not show up in Rendezvoous anymore. I use that printer everyday and its stated as compatible by Apple and has always worked superb with AE. This is a catastrophy!!!

The 5.3 firmware works perfectly for me. We're using WPA encryption in a mixed environment with both Macs and PCs and have had no problems whatsoever with any of the client computers or the base station.

Just an FYI since I know some people have had problems with these firmware updates in the past. I've updated 2 Airport Extreme base stations with the 5.3 firmware and have had no problems so far.

Try a soft reset, which will restore your settings. I have the same problem. http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=107451

Seems to have helped. I think I have some interference, because my airport would just go out intermittently. So far (for the past 5-10 minutes) no problems.........
