AirPort Base Station Firmware Update 7.7.2

Apple has released AirPort Base Station Firmware Update 7.7.2 for the AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule base stations with 802.11ac that were released earlier this year (see “Apple Releases Longer-lasting MacBook Air, Faster AirPort,” 10 June 2013). The update fixes a bug that prevented a USB hard drive connected to an AirPort Extreme from being recognized as an available disk for Time Machine, resolves a problem that caused intermittent loss in WAN connectivity, and addresses an issue that could result in a network loop. You must update your AirPort base station using AirPort Utility via either your Mac or an iOS device with the
free AirPort Utility app installed (the download isn’t available via the Apple Support Web page).
