    same here. except i know mine for sure isn't a wireless issue. even wired clients dont' get a DHCP address. it's like the routing and everything goes down. even if i give it a static IP in the correct subnet, it still can't talk. pinging the TC fails. the only way to resolve it is to reset it.

    does anyone have a link to the old 7.3.2 firmware?

    FYI- I figured out how to download old firmware versions. I figured I would post it here in case someone else is having the same problem.

    From the menu bar, while holding the Option key down, select Airport Utility -> Check for Updates… You’ll see a list of all the old and new firmwares which are available. Select the version you want for your Airport (note different Airports have different firmwares.) After downloading 7.3.2 for your Time Capsule/Airport. After the download is complete, select the device you want to upgrade (or in this case, downgrade) and click Base Station, then Upload Firmware. The version(s) that you download should be in the drop down menu.

    please, how do you roll back to 7.3.x? (Complicating my problem, I changed the external hard drive I use for Time Capsule yesterday just prior to downloading the FW update, so I have no prior software or firmware updates to revert to.) Thanks

    OK, so I went to Airport Utilities, clicked on 7.3.2 for Extreme, and the download began. Once done, I went back to Base Station, clicked on Update Software, and got an error message that says I can't do it. What should I be doing to revert to 7.3.2? Thanks.
