Apple has updated AirPort, bringing it to version 3.0.4 for Mac OS X 10.2 and 10.1.5.

The update prevents a problem for AirPort Extreme in which the Base Station would stop responding after being on a busy Ethernet network.

The release also includes the latest version of AirPort's firmware (version 5.0.4). The firmware reduces performance reduction when connected to busy local area networks.

Apple particularly recommends this update for customers using French AirPort Extreme Base Stations.
