Airport Base Station Firmware Update Warning
Category : Technology/AEBSFirmwareUpdateWoes.txt
I've tried to connect my "old" Airport Extreme base station (the one that went PPoE dead after the firmware 5.6 update) to the broadband modem and again it fails to connect to PPoE. But it worked fine at Hai Hwee's house after a hard reset.
So now, I'm not sure if it has somehow acquired an incompatibility with the Efficient Speedstream 5250 ADSL modem or is it with Singnet itself. Hai Hwee's house is on PacNet, using an Aztech DSL 305E modem.
Anyway, this is a warning for Singapore-based users. Think twice before you do that 5.6 firmware update.
