Airport devices never had a proper DynDNS feature. While they had something like it, it was only usable for the rare times when someone made a wide area Bonjour network. Even then it required the use of a DynDNS client on a desktop machine.


Well, then they should enable it the right way. Each and every crappy 3rd class router has this.

It was used by less than 1,000 people (as per DynDNS' numbers). Why waste time adding back in a limited feature like that when you can access your devices via iCloud's address.

Just for interest, why is this one not shown in the App Store update section? If I wouldn't have read the article by accident I surely would have missed this update.


These kinds of updates don't show up in the App Store. You must open Airport Utility for them to appear or your Airport light may blink.

No update for older model Extremes? The update isn't showing up in Airport Utility.

True, this is what I stated basically. But the question we won't be able to answer is: Why? :D


Because they are not updates for Mac OS X or any installed application.

After updating my Airport Extreme to 7.7.2, I'm running into an issue. All of my apple products (Macbook Air, Apple TV, iPod Touch) can connect to my 5 GHz network successfully, but all of my non Apple products (Roku 3, Nexus 7, Samsung Smart TV) cannot. They were all connecting just fine with 7.7.1. They are however able to connect to the 2.4 GHz network successfully with 7.7.2.

I've turned the 5 GHz network off and back on and have also restarted the Airport Extreme, but the issue persists. Is anyone else running into this problem?

How do I open Airport Extreme to see what version I have? My Airport Utility is 6.3.2, but I don't know how to check my AE.


Just single click the AE in Airport Utility and you will get this popup showing the firmware version.

Thumb resize.
