    "Very good for n-routhers, but g-routers unsupported"

    January 31, 2012  |   By KerryGinn--2008


    New, attractive graphics display the local area network configuration. Clicking on a node brings up a chart with more details.


    Oddly, Airport Utility version 6.0 no longer supports g-routers (or older). It advises users to use AirPort Utility 5.6 instead. It offers a link to the Apple site to obtain the older version, but that link does not actually go to the download page.

    Upon its first use, Airport Utility signaled that an Airport Express firmware update was available, which I elected to install. At the end of the firmware installation, Airport Utility (not the firmware) never showed that the Airport Express had rebooted and was active.


    Airport Utility 6.0. installed flawlessly through Software Update. The lack of support for earlier routers is an unpleasant surprise.

    Note: AirPort Utility 5.6 (for g-routers and earlier) will automatically install side-by-side with AirPort Utility 6.0
