Updating older airport extremme

Curious whether the router offered better internet performance, I compared bandwidth and wireless radio strength tests both using the old Airport Extreme base station and the all new Air Port Extreme.Results were only marginally improved using the new model with my two-year-old Mac Book Pro, which proved consistent whether using 802.11g or 802.11n connection technologies.You will see a red badge with a number 1 next to the Air Port in Air Port Utility if a firmware update is available in the future.7.6.4 has not been updated for a few years, so it is unlikely that it will see any future updates.7.7.3 will likely be updated in the near future.All Air Ports are up to date with the latest firmware.You will see a red badge with a number 1 next to the Air Port in Air Port Utility if a firmware update is available in the future.7.6.4 has not been updated for a few years, so it is unlikely that it will see any future updates.7.7.3 will likely be updated in the near future. I have 7.7.3 running my late '14 installed AE, have been experiencing really slow browser performance after updating my i Phone 6s to i OS 9.2.Hopefully this'll be resolved with an upcoming update to either/both devices.My four- or five-year old Apple Air Port Extreme base station was growing long in the tooth.Plus, I think its power source was struck by lightning a few weeks ago. Having previously read positive reviews of Apple's new 9 Air Port Extreme, which boasts 802.11ac performance and beamforming technology, I picked one up.

On computers with Snow Leopard or Leopard, use Airport Utility 5.6.1, which supports 802.11n models and the original Air Port Express.If not how would I check and update each station separately?Thanks All Air Ports are up to date with the latest firmware.The new unit's ease of installation (a wizard is provided if the unit is being installed from scratch, and the router can even be deployed using just an i OS device), combined with its 802.11ac support, make it a natural replacement for any other aging Apple router where Time Capsule backup features are not required.The fact the new unit's power brick is integrated inside the router also makes it easier to connect and deploy, and this is a welcomed feature.

Other than being noticeably taller than the older model it replaces, the new 6.6-inch tall Air Port Extreme is 3.85 inches wide.
