post #1 of 7

woohoo!

all i want though is support for a PPPoE Software Base Station under OS X...

taken from macnn:
AirPort 2.0 adds AOL, 128-bit support

Apple today released AirPort 2.0 software as well as an updated AirPort base station. Version 2.0 of the software supports AOL 5.0 (US only), 128-bit encryption, CISCO Leap clients, integrated firewall protection, and RADIUS support for centrally manage user access control. (Note that encryption for original AirPort Base Stations will remain 40-bit, while AirPort cards are updated to support 128-bit encryption via firmware.) Apple is also shipping new AirPort Base stations that support up to 128-bit encryption, offer two Ethernet ports, and support up to 50 users on a single base station. [Website updated, but software not available online nor via OS X; use OS 9 control panel]

I can't get the update for some reason (I'm in Mac OS X 10.1 w/Security Update).

Any way, does anyone know if your Mac will still connect to your 'old' base station after upgrading it to 2.0?

I'm a little wary of upgrading, only to find out my 'old' base station is unable to see my Mac.

Try again. It is available via Software Update under X now as well.

I just did the upgrade to 2.0. The update also includes new software for the base station. The install requires a restart of your Mac, but apparently not of the base station. Interesting. So far it's working just fine for me.

Until we get a 3 lbs sub-PowerBook, the 12-inch PowerBook will do.

The new v2.0 of the AirPort Admin Utility uploaded new software to my base station and restarted it.

Btw. a bug where the AirPort connection was lost after sleep is now fixed
