Thanks. I just got it. Mine was at 7.34, and I was occasionally dropping the connection to my USB drive(s) upon waking from sleep. It wasn't a major problem, I'd just open Airport Utility, make any change and then change back and hit update and reconnect. We'll see if this fixes that.

I'll have to check mine.

I've noticed from time to time when I wake my mini and iMac that they ..."are no longer connected to the Internet." Turning AirPort on and off at the menubar fixes it.

Mine never dropped the connection to the internet but did lose the connection to one or more of the USB drives occasionally on awakening. The drive icon would still be on the desktop but wouldn't open. My drives sleep when they are inactive and a few times I thought the connection had dropped and in reality they were just spinning up, but sometimes, no matter how long I waited, I couldn't access them. We'll see if this fixes that.
