Apple has released AirPort 3.0 for Mac OS X 10.2 and 10.1.5.

The release updates the firmware in both AirPort Extreme and AirPort products. It improves the product's performance, the company states.

Apple says: "AirPort Extreme delivers higher speeds for customers who have both the AirPort Extreme Card and the AirPort Extreme Base Station. However, AirPort Extreme will work with all AirPort products.

"So with an AirPort Extreme Base Station and an AirPort card, using AirPort 3.0 software, you'll still enjoy significant benefits, especially from the standpoint of printing, administration, and options for extending the range of your wireless network."
