Launch /Apps/Utils/AirPort Utility and select each base station, one at a time, and the window that opens will tell you that you need to update firmware (if, in fact, you do need to update firmware).
Note: My AirPort Express base station, which I updated just a short while ago, shows Version: 7.6.3.
