    The same problem appeared for me when I updated to 7.6.1 firmware. I have 2 TC base stations and it only affected 1. I uploaded the 7.6 back to the airport with the problem and my problem hasn't appeared since.

    I revereted from 7.6.1 to 7.5.2 and I'm still having problems connecting (see screen capture below)! Any other suggestions?

    It's Dino again. Different Apple ID. :-)

    I'm thinking I have the old version of Airport Utility Installed.

    Mine says 7. something on my iMac at home.

    Just looked at AU on my MBP & the Version is: 6.0 (600.92)

    Is this the Newest Version. Thanks in advance!

    Sort of. AirPort Utility 6.0 and 5.6 were introduced at the same time.


    If you don't have 5.6, you can download and install AirPort Utility 5.6 for Mac OS X Lion if you prefer the "old" look and more features.


    You can keep both 5.6 and 6.0 on your Mac.

    Dino, DJ,

    My Time Capsule (4th Generation) is no longer creating that 'pop up' disconnect message.

    In fact, I have not seen a disconnection [or log of disconnect reconnect] message now for a week or so.

    It just seemed to have faded away, no smarts from me...


    In the mean time, I have shut down and restarted my iMac several times [for other reasons]...


    Although the 'nuisance' has gone, I am going to try to prompt it to return, by restarting the Time Capsule.


    Incidentally, there appears to be some confusion in this discussion...

    a) Version 7.6.1 is the Time Capsule [and AirPort Extreme and AirPort Express]

        latest firmware.  That is the one you should be using.

    b) The AirPort Utility had an upgrade to Version 6.0 recently, with nice looking Graphics,

        but omitted some functionality...

        [DHCP Clients table, Wireless Clients table including a graph of signal strength, Logs]. 

        Version 6.0 does provide more sensible consolidated information

        on each wireless client, if you hover over the wireless client name.

    c) AirPort Utility version 5.6 has one other nice feature.

        You can open separate a window for each Airport Wireless Device on your network,

        which I found handy when adding a new device.

    after having the same problem and asking Google for help, I found this document:



    Not sure if this could help you. Its pretty old but at least shows my problem.

    Maybe you have seen it allready?!

    I found a solution that consists of killing /System/Library/LoginPlugins/FSDisconnect.loginPlugin


    It won't solve the original connection issues, but it does make the error message stay away.
