    Still no support for Radio Mode on the 802.11ac Airport Extreme..


  2. I thought Apple didn’t support using a USB drive connected to an Airport Extreme for Time machine backups.


  3. I started having Issues with disconnection since the upgrade, is this an upgrade problem. I have had about 3 or 4 instances where all of the sudden the network disappears. Everything looks like it is working fine but no internet. A restart of the airport fixes this. Anything else I need to do?
