AirPort 3.1.1 Improves Performance and Compatibility

Send Article to a Friend

AirPort 3.1.1 Improves Performance and Compatibility -- Apple has released version 3.1.1 of the AirPort software, which includes version 5.1.1 of the AirPort Extreme Base Station firmware. Changes in AirPort 3.1.1 include performance enhancements between wired and wireless clients, stronger handling of multicast traffic on LANs, and better performance and behavior when using NAT and DHCP in the AirPort Extreme Base Station. We've also seen an anecdotal report in The Wireless Networking Starter Kit forum about the firmware update enabling a D-Link DWL G520 PCI card in a PC connect to an AirPort Extreme Base Station, which hadn't previously worked. AirPort 3.1.1 is a 7.8 MB download, available via Software Update or directly from Apple. [ACE]
