In 1999 Apple introduced Air Port - an affordable and easy-to-use solution for accessing the Internet without restrictive cables.
The Apple Airport Access Point CAN be used with Windows-based PCs.
The Apple product is basically the same thing as the Lucent Wave LAN Access Point (Lucent is now calling the Wave Lan products Orinoco).
Today's Air Port update also addresses a memory corruption issue with 802.11ac base stations that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the device's Wi-Fi chip.
Both firmware versions can be downloaded and installed through Apple's Air Port Utility on i OS or mac OS.
