Apple Issues AirPort, Mac OS X Language Updates

Send Article to a Friend

Apple Issues AirPort, Mac OS X Language Updates -- Apple last weekend released a number of updates via Software Update. The AirPort Driver Update 2.0.1 for both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X includes an updated driver for the AirPort Card that improves robustness and properly prompts for a password when joining a password-protected Computer-to-Computer network. Also included is new firmware for the original AirPort Base Station (Graphite; the new AirPort Base Stations are the same white color as the new iBooks and don't need the firmware update). Improved in the update for the original AirPort Base Station is PPPoE support; after downloading the update, launch the AirPort Admin Utility, select your base station, and click Configure to start the update process.

Over the weekend Apple also released updated localizations of Mac OS X in Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Danish, Finnish, Korean, Norwegian, and Swedish. Although most people probably don't need all of these languages, since older versions are probably already installed in your copy of Mac OS X, it might be best to download them to stay up to date for the off chance you need to switch languages unexpectedly. Or, of course, you can just select them in Software Update and choose Make Inactive from the File menu to prevent them from cluttering Software Update's list from now on. [ACE]
