Time Capsule and AirPort Base Station Firmware Update 7.4.2
Available now (via Airport Utility update check) - here's the info from the Apple page:

About Time Capsule and AirPort Base Station Firmware Update 7.4.2
The Time Capsule, AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Express Base Station with 802.11n* Firmware 7.4.2 update provides several fixes, including:
  • Fixes some problems with extending and maintaining connectivity with extended networks
  • Fixes an issue with clients that enable 802.11 "Power Save"
  • Fixes connectivity issues with some third-party devices
  • Fixes an issue when the base station is configured for PPPoE
  • Fixes some Back To My Mac issues with connectivity and support for third-party routers

    It is recommended that AirPort Utility 5.4.2 or later be installed before upgrading to Firmware version 7.4.2.."

  • The download link on that page just goes to a doc about installing firmware updates.
    As noted several months ago here, I and many readers had problems with firmware 7.4.1 (many reverting back to previous firmware), hopefully this update improves things. If you update to firmware 7.4.2, let me know if it helps (or not).
    I've just updated my AE N (simul dual-band) base to 7.4.2, but too early to tell if it's improved over 7.4.1.

    The download link goes to a page requiring a Log-in, but if you have FCP 6.0x installed, it will appear in Software Update. (And you can use the "Download" Software Update menu option if you like to use d/l updaters and save a copy of them as I do.)
