AirPort Driver Update 2004-08-31 Released

Send Article to a Friend

AirPort Driver Update 2004-08-31 Released -- Apple released AirPort Driver Update 2004-08-31 last week, which improves reliability on networks with mixed 802.11b (AirPort) and 802.11g (AirPort Extreme) signals, according to the update's description. The update is a 758K download, and is also available via Software Update.

Although the description is vague, I was able to see one direct result after applying the update: it appeared to solve audio dropouts I was hearing when streaming music to an AirPort Express. However, while the update did improve playback, it has not yet solved the dropout problems entirely. One suggestion that seems to work for some people is to change the network configuration so that it's just using 802.11b, but of course that negates the reason for having a network using the higher-bandwidth 802.11g (as do AirPort Extreme and AirPort Express).
