Apple updated its AirPort Base Station and Time Capsule Firmware today to version 7.6.1:

This update is for all 802.11n AirPort Express, 802.11n AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule models. It fixes an issue with wireless performance and provides support for remote access to an AirPort disk or a Time Capsule hard drive with an iCloud account.

Also getting an update is AirPort Utility 6.0 for Mac OS X Lion (Release Notes), which looks a lot like the iOS AirPort Utility.  This application only works with 802.11N Airports.  Yes, everything Mac is going iOS.

AirPort Utility 5.6 (Release Notes) for Mac OS X Lion is also receiving the following updates for those with 802.11G stations:

  • Resolves an issue with using network passwords stored in the Keychain
  • Works with AirPort Express 802.11g and AirPort Extreme 802.11g base stations
