Finding Old Editions

If you have older gear, or want to run an older version of AirPort Utility for Mac, you might prefer to read an older ebook by Glenn about AirPort networking. These are all zipped PDF files. If you need an unzipped copy, contact us. To get an EPUB or Mobipocket version (if available), click the Check for Updates (or Ebook Extras) button on the cover (page 1) of the PDF:

Take Control of Your AirPort Network
From 2005, this ebook is still the go-to if you need to work with 802.11b and g gear. Its Mac OS X focus is 10.4 Tiger.

Take Control of Your 802.11n AirPort Network, First Edition, Version 1.6
Last updated in 2009, this ebook includes the simultaneous dual-band 802.11n base stations that Apple released in 2009 as well as older 802.11n base stations and scenarios that include 802.11b and 802.11g gear. Its Mac OS X focus is on 10.4 Tiger, 10.5 Leopard, and 10.6 Snow Leopard.

Take Control of Your 802.11n AirPort Network, Second Edition
Published in 2011, This title freezes time with AirPort Utility 5.5, which is more fully featured than AirPort Utility 6 (AirPort Utility 6 keeps on catching up, so over time, fewer people should need to run AirPort Utility 5.5). It’s primary Mac OS X focus is 10.7 Lion.

Take Control of Your 802.11n AirPort Network, Third Edition, Version 3.2
Published in 2013 just after the release of 10.9 Mavericks, this title focuses on 802.11n and ac. It looks at AirPort Utility 6 for Mac and for iOS. We can’t think of a strong case for reading this over the new Take Control of Your Apple Wi-Fi Network, but if you need info from mid 2013, it’s available.
