Currently Being ModeratedDec 23, 2010 7:55 AM (in response to SAEMO)I had a similar problem with my iPad and iPhone. After some research here, it appears to be the firmware update. I flashed back to the previous version and everything is back in order.
To clarify, my wi-fi connection didn't drop completely, however my iPhone or iPad would stay connected if I was in close proximity (read: the same room) to the router.
I won't update my firmware until I hear from others that their problems have been resolved.iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 23, 2010 9:40 AM (in response to SAEMO)After upgrading my Airport Firmware, I lost connectivity with my HP LaserJet CP1525nw printer. I am running 2x iPads, 1 iPhone4, 2x MacBook Pros & 1 Mac Pro. All would see the printer but be unable to print to it.
Today, I downgraded the Airport Firmware back to 7.5.1 and the printing capability is completely restored!!!
To downgrade your Airport Firmware go to Hard Drive -> Utilities -> Airport Utility.
Across the top you will see a tab called Base Station. Pulldown on it and select "Upgrade Firmware." You will pull down on the arrows from the 7.5.2 which is displayed and see 7.5.1 beneath. Select that. Within 5 minutes, your Airport will be back on 7.5.1. After my Airport restarted itself as part of the downgrade, all computers, etc. could again print wirelessly.
I hope this will solve your problem, too!MacPro 2.66 Quad Core 8GB and MBP 2.53, iPod Touch 1stGen, Apple TV 320GB, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Apple Display 24", iPhone 4 32GB, iPad 3G 64GB
Currently Being ModeratedDec 23, 2010 2:01 PM (in response to Emilie in Key Largo)Thank you both!!
The next most up to date version I had the choice of was 7.4.2, not 7.5.1. I reloaded that version and it worked!! I'm back up and running!!
The funny thing is, I went to the Genius Bar this afternoon with my Airport Extreme, my MacBook, iTouch and laptop PC and it all worked there w 7.5.2, but not at home...frustrating.
One last question, is there a way to force an upgrade from 7.4.2 to 7.5.1? Currently, 7.5.1 is not an option in the pulldown menu. Thank you!1GHz PowerPC G4, 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo & OS X10.5.8
Currently Being ModeratedDec 23, 2010 9:50 PM (in response to SAEMO)I had the same issue. 2 iPhone 4's lost connectivity to the Airport Extreme 7.5.2 firmware, as well as an 11inch MBA. But the 21 inch (3.06) iMac kept it's connection.
The instructions above did not work for me. After opening the AirPort Utility, I had the icon on the left side of the window highlighted in blue showing my Airport Extreme with a green dot next to it. I then right clicked (yes, came from a windows world) on it and got a pop down list and chose "Upload Firmware…" Then I was able to choose 7.5.1 and it downgraded my firmware and after waiting for the reboot of the Airport Extreme, all my devices worked again.
If this is a pervasive issue, I hope Apple fixes it soon.iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.5), 3.06 Core i3, 4GB ram

Not that I am aware. Whatever was your previous version is what you have to go with. If it works fine for you, perfect!
