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.

No offense, but this is a horrible downloading site.

FYI to anyone, I installed on ML and it appears to work fine. If you use the putlocker link above, I recommend you do what I did. Use a Virtual Machine, save a snapshot, access the site and download, revert back to the snapshot. Why? These kind of 'free to store' sites are full of false links, ads, 'possible' viruses and back doors, the risk of clicking on the wrong link and downloading something 'else' possibly dangerous is high, even if you are careful. USe a VM, get in, get out, erase all traces.

I say this with no disrespect to the uploader, I understand if you are trying to post something for public download, it comes with the territory in terms of finding a free host, so he is not to blame and we are all grateful for his work and providing this fix (Thanks @MacOSX4ever ! )

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.

Verified also with configuring IPv6 to Link-Local Only.

And the new 6.3.1 update also fixes it.

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!

Unfortunately, I am also one of the "victims" of this update. I can still connect to my AEBS via IP address.

The iOS version of Airport Utility still works. My AEBS shows up immediately.

Same problem here

I replaced the new version by the previous one (6.2) from my Time Machine backup and it's working as before :-)

the easiest way to work around this bug is to recover the previous version 6.2 from the Timemachine backup - did that, works perfectly. Shame on Apple for not fixing this obvious bug quickly.

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 agree... Apple seems to be doing this across the board with OS X. However, I've found that in most cases, including with the AirPort Utility, the same options are there--- they've just hidden them under control-clicks, etc.--Really stupid since it makes the programs much less user friendly.

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.

Beware - after updating to ver5.5.2 Airport Utility no longer detects my Airport Express base, even though it still shows up under Network.

Culture Of One had trouble on 19 Dec 2010
Anybody else notice that after the update the "Time Connected" no longer displays correctly? Not sure if this is a result of the AirPort Utility update or the latest AirPort Extreme firmware update, but since the updates, the timer no longer resets when I disconnect and reconnect. I have a dynamic IP, and I like to know how long I've been connected via a given IP. Instead, now I can tell exactly how much time has passed since I made the software/firmware update ;) Any suggestions on how to correct this would be appreciated.

This update has proven to be VERY unstable, especially on my MacBook Pro, which after the initial update and reboot caused EVERYTHING to crash repeatedly.

After rebooting, it seemed to be fine. Running a permissions repair revealed ALOT of things needing repair.

Did someone in Apple's QA department fall asleep while testing this thing??

Just letting you know that my update showed zero of these issues. Super smooth. Didn't repair Permissions, didn't run diskutil. 5.4.1 was still running, actually. Closed it and re launched. 5.4.2 glory. No crashes. (I don't recommend people update in my haphazard style)

mischivo had trouble on 11 Mar 2009
This update has bugs in it. Whereas my network was A-Okay with the previous version, it now has a major issue: it periodically loses connection every dozen minutes or so. It does this by either disconnecting me from my network (even though my network remains in the pull down list) or by simply losing connection to the Internet even if the network connection remains strong. In each case, turning off airport and turning it back on fixes the problem.
