How will I know if my Airport Extreme has the latest firmware?  And (not related) how to change the password used to connect to my network?

I think I bought the latest version of Airport Extreme.  It is the unit which is rectangular, is about 6 to 7 w., etc.  I have some basic questions that I do not understand:

1. How will I know if I have the latest firmware for this device?  I read a few posts that make it sound as if it was just automatically updates.  Is this true?

2. can someone tell me how to change the password used to connect to my wireless network?

Thank you very much!

If a firmware update is available, AirPort Extreme flashes orange.

The most up-to-date version of the firmware is 7.7.3.

You can see what version you currently have the following on your Mac...

Open Finder > Applications > utilities > AirPort Utility

Click on the image of the AirPort Extreme

Look for the Version

If the new firmware was available, you will see a button update here

To change the wireless network password...

Click on edit in the window smaller than you watched just to check the firmware version

Click on the Wireless tab at the top of the next window

Go back / change the wireless password and enter a new password

Do the same thing to check

Click Update at the bottom right of the window and give the airport a minute full for restart

  • Airport Extreme loses the connection to the home network

    I have an Airport Extreme (AE) with Cox Internet in my house. Version AE 7.6.7 since the end of may 2016, I lost WiFi connection radomly. I had a Cox technician out who finished just change a 'filter' in our neighborhood who feed on other Cox at the reception. He said this analog filter had to be upgraded to a digital filter.  Despite this, my WiFi kept down again. According to other Threads of the community, this problem was solved by putting the IPV6 in AE parameter for "link-local only.  I did this and still it is falling.

    According to a recent post in support of Cox:

    Most of the routers to retail, especially those produced in recent years, are completely compatible with IPv6. Cox has determined that the Apple AirPort Extreme routers, including Time Capsule models, may know Internet connectivity issues when running the firmware released before May 25, 2016. For more information, contact Apple Support.

    To a Moderator: Apple will have an AE update for this problem?

    The moderators of the forum are not questions on a user to user support forum, so don't expect a response from an Apple employee.  Please contact Apple Support directly if you wish to speak directly with Apple.

    Then, Apple has already released the new firmware... 7.6.7 May 25... so it's not the question that you reference in the statement on the website of Cox. Cox was referring to a firmware sooner, like 7.6.4, for example in their declaration.

    We have seen a number of messages from other users of Cox, who reported that the new firmware has resolved connection issues that existed before.

    To find out where the real problem may lie, I suggest that you connect a computer (with the wireless turned off) directly to one of the LAN ports <>- on AirPort Extreme for a few days and keep an eye on the connection.

    Post back your results. Then, we'll know if you have a general Internet... connection problem that could be a problem of modem... or a single wireless issue.  In all cases, it will help if you provide the model number of the AirPort Extreme you have... and... he make and model number of the modem you are using at the moment.

  • I want to thank my wifi in another part of the House with an Airport Extreme. But I want to not be connected to the modem main via ethernet cable is it possible?

    I want to thank my wifi in another part of the House with an Airport Extreme. But I want to not be connected to the modem main via ethernet cable is it possible?

    I put in place already to extend the wifi of my modem still connected to the modem via ethernet cable.

    Now I want to be considered on the floor and use it to extend the wifi without ethernet cable

    The AirPort Extreme can extend only wireless signal from another router from Apple, so if you want to take the AirPort Extreme on the floor and extend wireless signal, you will need another airport connected to your modem by Ethernet cable router to produce the wireless signal that will extend the extreme on the floor.

    Another way of saying the same thing would be to say that if you want to extend wireless using a router from Apple, you'll need two of them do... because AirPort Extreme is not compatible with a third-party modem or modem/router for this purpose.

  • How to change my password and my incoming and outgoing mail servers

    Hello, I used Outlook Express for years and I know how to set up 'everything' I need in the pages of parameters because their settings pages are all "logical" with everything out in the open.

    However, Thunderbird "cache" their settings behind the buttons and confusing forms.

    There are many tutorials that explain how to set up Thunderbird since the beginning and show how to set up a new e-mail account. But I was not able to find a tutorial on how to change my password "after that" I have been using Thunderbird for a while.

    I'm also no way to change the incoming and outgoing servers. For example, I changed my hosting at another Web host and I need to use the new the new hosting company e-mail servers and I can not anywhere, see any tutorials that cover current activities or day by day with Thunderbird.

    Can you please change your screens of settings for Thunderbird easier for new people to find these normal and necessary?

    Also can you please point me to a tutorial that shows me how to change my password and change my incoming and outgoing servers?

    Thank you very much!

    You can change your settings to

    • Thunderbird > tools > accounts settings
    • After clicking the account settings > you get a pop up window
      • Left hand side you can see the list of emails that you configured
      • Same left panel last option is the outgoing server settings

  • I changed my password of gmail e-mail. How can I change the password used by Thunderbird to connect to gmail.

    I changed the password used to access my gmail account. Thunderbird still uses the old password to access the account. How can I change the password that is using Thunderbird. The last time this happened I ended up creating a new account to Thunderbird for gmail. Create the new Thunderbird account at least let me enter the new password. I don't really want to have three accounts of Thunderbird for the same gmail account.

    Please do not respond with suggestions on using password manager. I do not use it and do not want to start. I looked, and none of my Thunderbird passwords are displayed here. All I want to do is change the password in Thunderbird. If Thunderbird does not have a feature that allows you to change passwords, should be added.

    The link posted by Christ1 gives WRONG directions. In Thunderbird 24.4.0, is:
    Tools, Options, security, passwords, saved passwords

    Admittedly, in fact, you want that he SHOWS you the passwords, and then you can delete them.
    Once fact you check for mail, it will tell you, it didn't, and then you have the option to enter a new password.
    MUCH too complicated. Time to put the password and the ability to change, in the e-mail account options.
