I downloaded and applied this update with no problems. I did find it frustrating that it didn't show up in software update. I had to open the airport utility then it let me know that there was a firmware update available. I think most folks out there wouldn't know about this update and wouldn't open the airport utility to check for it. There must be a better way of doing this especially if some of these updates are security related.
