the firmware is available at http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/timecapsuleandairportbasestation80211nfir mware731.html
it requires Airport Utility 5.3.1PowerBook G4 17-inch, Mac OS X (10.5.2), | 1,5Go ram | airport express | wireless MM | iPod photo 20go | LaCie d2 Quadra
Thanks but there isn't actually a download at that location - it just diverts you to an instruction document. The document doesn't shed any light on it either - other than keep trying?!
Thanks anyway.G5 Dual, Mac OS X (10.4.5)
I get the same exact error message. I've tried completely removing the Airport Utility (using App Zapper) and reinstalling, but that hasn't helped.
I've also tried it from 2 other Macs (a Macbook Air with all the latest updates as well as a Macbook without the latest TM and Airport update). All get the same error message.

Just a quick update. It seems as though my firewall was blocking the Airport Utility from checking for updates. I had suspected that it might be related to that somehow, so I had disabled all the protection profiles, but for some reason it still wasn't working.
It was only when I had used my Macbook Air from my office that the Airport Utility immediately detected the newly released firmware and downloaded it.
For the record I'm using a Fortigate 50B at home and a Juniper SSG-140 (both with latest firmware), both of which are connected to the same ISP.

Ok, I think I know why!!! Me and the other poster Ahamidi are in Dubai, I tried opening the apple airport utility after connecting via VPN "which makes my computer in the US as far as IP/connection", RIGHT AWAY apple utility picked it UP!!!! 7.3.1, so I think its either:
Our ISP is blocking some connections/ports.
Apple european server is having some problems, or is assigning us lower priority.MAC PRO 2.66, Mac OS X (10.5)
I had the same problem and played with my network to no end. After examining the logs I found it was a permission problem - did the airport update from the admin account and it went right through.iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
I have the same problem, but I'm in Paris (France, not Texas !).
How and where do you connect with the VPN (where is this utility also ?) ?
My ISP is not blocking anything, so I'm wondering what to do !!! Since many here (in Paris) have managed to upgrade and they are on my ISP !!!

can't get any update's off the aiport extreme too.
Same connection error.
The logfile says something about an administive excess denied to fe80::20d... bla bla.
I am always on the main account of my mac...
Strange... Is apple making an other version of the firmware so the block the old one?
I looked at all the answers above, but nothing will work over here.imac 24", Mac OS X (10.5.2)
I invariably get the "There was an error connecting to the update server. Check your network settings and try again" message when attempting this update.
My MacBook Pro is connected directly to the AirPort via ethernet (I've also tried wireless). The AirPort is the LAN router, and connects directly to the cable modem. What might I be missing? Where might I look?

Currently Being ModeratedApr 23, 2008 1:15 AM (in response to Michael Massing)Turns out the problem was with neither the update process nor the network settings. I finally connected the dots with some other installation problems I've been having. I may have a corrupted OS X install. When I ran the AirPort firmware update from a clone of the original installation, it ran flawlessly. So tomorrow is reinstall day.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.2), AirPort Extreme (n)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 23, 2008 1:47 AM (in response to Michael Massing)I'll try creating a new admin user first, who knows !
Another thing, my Airport Extreme knows that it has an update waiting, because it is blinking regularly (as I set it for this). So it might just be my account. Maybe, I should remove all the pref files, but I have so much installed ... And I ran a utility that checks if my .plist files are corrupted and everything is neat !
I don't really want to re-install OS X !MacBook Pro 15.4", Mac OS X (10.5.2), 1 GB RAM, iPod 60, AE Base Station
