New version of AirPort Utility 5.6.1 launcher for Mavericks. This version doesn't require the modification of the AirPort Utility itself. It is a stand-alone app that will launch AirPort Utility 5.6.1. I included a short Read Me file that explains it. http://www.putlocker.com/file/04E0F92A8554891C

I found a way to make 6.3 work with older TimeCapsules: switching on IPv6 in: Preferences - Network - advanced - TCP/IP - configure IPv6, then set it to "Link-local only". Apparently 6.3 communicates with the TC via IPv6.

Many users have found their AirPort Express or Extreme Base Stations are no longer recognized after updating from version 6.2 of the Airport Utility. Do not update to this version until Apple deals with the bug reports and fixes the issue!

Has the very-useful ability to rename connected USB printer(s) been taken away? I no longer can find the "Printers" tab, and thus no longer have control over naming attached printer(s). It sucks to have several identical printers connected to a Airport Extreme or Express (USB hubs are fully supported) and be unable to instantly identify which printer is which from a client machine.

Looks like Apple's routers now supports WPS. But I understand that WPS is a security nightmare. Can one turn off WPS (like most other routers) using Airport Utility?

This still sucks. Apple really screwed up when they went from v5.6 to v6.x. They dumbed-down the program (trying to make it more iOS-like) and removed features that I need to use.

I'm glad to still see apple supporting my 2nd Generation airport extreme. I have 80211n with Gigabyte ethernet, and i have 5Ghz compatibility, I just lack the dual band support. Anyway today airport utility 6.2 installed without problems on my white macbook, running Lion, and airport firmware version 7.6.3 installed without problems on my base station. Seems like i'm back up and running without any trouble.

Broke my link to my Timecapsule. Went back to os 10.7.3 and 5.5.3 ; happy ever since! Maybe I could have used 5.6.1? Any idea?

Well, version 6.x works, but that's it. Functionality is too limited and not exactly more intuitive either. Stick to V5.6 which can be found here: http://support.apple.com/downloads/#airport

MacUpdate Related Links note -- 5.6.1 doesn't work with 10.7. Have to use 5.6 with 10.7 for other features or older 802.11g Airports. Isn't it nice how Apple has taken something simple and made it more complicated by adding multiple versions. Get the software engineers to make it work with ALL airports and ALL features -- and quit screwing with your customers!

Okay, 6.1 has SOME IPv6 support back...but still not all the same options that 5.x had. For example, there's no option to configure the netmask in host mode! I tried sticking /48 on the end of my address, but that didn't take; apparently, they assume that any end user will be using a /64. Note that they still provide 5.6.x for "advanced users" or whatever. Unfortunately, the 5.6.1 version currently linked on MU is only for 10.5/10.6, even though the text says it's for 10.7. (There doesn't seem to be a 10.7-compatible version of 5.6.1 on Apple's site at all. Just 5.6.) I cannot give this a higher rating until they restore full IPv6 support in 6.x.

Apple's IPv6 crisis: http://www.macworld.com/article/1166522/apples_ipv6_misstep_is_a_sign_of_the_times.html Of course 6.0 does not mention the lack of IPv6 configuration options, requiring you to go back to 5.x for IPv6 support! Ridiculous, Apple!

Lion started freezing on me almost daily, but just since this update. It could be coincidence, but somehow I doubt it. The pre-Lion Apple and Lion-onwards Apple seems to have a very different quality control.

This new version really, really needs an advanced configuration/monitoring option. Its OK for the basics, but the loss of functionality from the previous version just makes it less capable for people who want/need more visibility into what is going on with the airports. Fortunately, Apple still (at the time of this mini review) still provides the previous version of the Airport management utility.

Weak! No support for wireless g devices including Apple's own Airport Express (older model). I don't know what is going on with Apple these days. I feel they are really pushing the limits on trying to capitalize on their customers expense. If they are not careful, they are going to start pushing their customers back to PC. It is ridiculous for them to keep discontinueing support for their older generation devices once a newer model comes out. They put out new models of all their equipment twice a year!
