    Mavericks and Airport Utility
    OK, so I upgraded to Mavericks.
    Previously, on ML, I was advised by an Apple support person to continue to use Version 5.6 of Airport Utility as both he and I couldn't understand why it was not possible to see wired devices and their associated addresses in the latest version.
    What do people use to find information about their devices?

    I have both 5.6 and 7.6.x installed on my systems. They can both run on the same system. You need a package extraction tool (Pacifist for example) to extract it somewhere unique. Anyhow, I use both versions so I have all the features, both new and discontinued. Hope that helps.

    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    Yes, I am running Mavericks. I should probably upgrade my profile, huh?
