Airport Utility 5.6 available from Apple
Authored by: j-beda on Feb 07, '12 07:43:30AM

Apple has 5.6 for Lion available as a direct download rather than needing any tools to pull it out of a previous package: "AirPort Utility 5.6 for Mac OS X Lion"

http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1482

I think (but I have not tried it) that this installs an application called "Airport Utility 5.6" so that it does not conflict with the most up-to-date version you may have installed called just "Airport Utility".

I have tried this, and I can confirm that the download link, when installed, gives you an app named "Airport Utility 5.6", which will not overwrite the v6.0 version, so that you can use both as appropriate.

I can't attach an image here, but when you search for "Airport Utility" using spotlight, you will be given a choice of both apps to run.

I confirm as well, that version 5.6 is installed besides version 6.0, both versions seem to work fine. And the newest version 6.0 is impossible to uninstall the usual way, a warning messages notifies you that macOS needs it to operate.
