  1. Airport still BUGGY! This update did NOT fix a problem that I have had ever since upgrading my MacBook Pro to Snow Leopard from Tiger. Basically, I can’t transfer any files over about a few Kb (>500Kb) across to my partner’s MacPro (also upgraded to Snow Leopard) over our Airport link. Never had any such problems all the time when we were with Tiger! Very disappointing given all the hype about Snow Leopard.

  2. @Chris-
    We’re not having that problem, as far as I’ve seen. Maybe it’s unique to your situation somehow? What type of file sharing? Does it work using Bonjour iChat? Any error messages? Do you have a thread on Apple’s forums I can follow?
