    When I first saw information about this yesterday, I thought it was a firmware upgrade for the base station itself, but it actually popped up in Software Upgrade last night on my Power Mac. I do have an Airport Extreme card in the machine, so I went ahead and installed it. I need to play around with wireless tonight and see how it works out.

    If you have not done so you need to open /Applications/Utilities/AirPort Admin Utility



    Click on configure and it will prompt you to update the Airport Base station. This helped me once I updated the base station.
