They use a generator of keys able to generate infinites codes and cheques of $200 they are selling for the moderate amount of $2,60. Apple is now confronted with the problem which they cannot immediately change the system of codes used because lots of accounts – legal cheques are still in circulation.

Time Capsule Firmware Update 7.4.1 issues

March 8th, 2009 8 comments

Apple released last friday a firmware update 7.4.1 for all 802.11n-based AirPort Extreme and AirPort Express base stations, as well as for all Time Capsules.
You can find the details about this update here : link

I have a Time Capsule and an Airport Express (not early 2009 but the older model) so I decided to give it a try. I am usually reluctant to install new updates when things works well, but the new feature to enable remote administration and remote access to compatible USB connected drives via Back to My Mac interested me. Note that you need to be a mobile me subscriber to use it.

As soon as I installed the update on my Time Capsule, the wifi 802.11n network 5 Ghz stopped working. Can’t see my wireless network anymore… I had to revert back to the previous version of the firmware and everything went back as it was.
