Updating airport express firmware
Until you update, a security vulnerability could leave your network open to attack—and, trust us, that's not something you want.
To install the update, select your Air Port device and click "update." For those of you managing Air Port from your i Phone or i Pad, the process is a little different: you'll tap the device, then "version," then select "download and install." Give the update time to install and you're all set to face the internet without fear!
Pushing reset button on APE does nothing, no matter how long or when it is pushed.
Once power cord is removed and inserted, the indications are always the same, regardless of what I do with the reset button.
Apple has been vague on the nature of the problem with its Air Port routers, only saying that "a memory corruption issue existed in DNS data parsing" which could allow an attacker to execute code on devices connected to your network.
If that sounds like gibberish to you, that's okay: the vague description of the problem even leaves experts guessing as to what the security issue was.
