  • Easy Wi-Fi setup using iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

    Connect your DSL or cable modem to AirPort Express and create your new wireless network in just a few taps from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Or use the built-in AirPort Utility on your Mac. Setup is just as fast and just as easy.

    Simultaneous dual-band 802.11n.

    AirPort Express lets Wi-Fi-enabled devices connect to your network on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands. Which means every connected device automatically uses the best band available for the fastest possible performance.

    Stream music with AirPlay.

    AirPlay takes the music from the iTunes library on your computer or iOS device and sends it wirelessly to any connected stereo or speakers in your home (audio cable sold separately). Play music on one set of speakers — or if you have more than one AirPort Express connected to speakers, play your music from iTunes on all of them at the same time.

    Print wirelessly from any room.

    On the back of AirPort Express is a USB port that’s made for your printer. Just plug it in and instantly it’s like having a printer in every room. And since AirPort Express works with Mac and PC, everyone in the house can take advantage of one centrally available printer.

    Compatibility and security.

    AirPort Express is compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n specifications. So no matter what Wi-Fi device you’re using, it will work with AirPort Express. AirPort Express also features a built-in firewall to protect your network from malicious Internet attacks. The firewall is automatically turned on, so you don’t have to do a thing.

    Create a guest network.

    Set up a separate Wi-Fi network with a separate password just for your guests. Simply enable the guest networking feature, and your guests can access the Internet but not other parts of your primary network, such as your computers, printers and LAN-attached hard drives.

The new airport express adds many of the features previously only available to the Extreme. A Ethernet port as well to hook up to a wired computer or a switch is finally included as well. Very easy to set up and works perfectly. I'm in 800SQ FT home though. anything over you should still consider an Extreme for the range.

The Linksys must have overheated and caught on fire - burning a hole in my cherry wood desk that has my 'Apple Collection' including vintage Macs. I would have died if anything would have happened to them. I saw online about this product and was persuaded to purchase it! It is so small, fits perfectly on my desk, and lastly became well fit in with my Apple Collection! The setup was quick and easy; Any old person could set it up! Great job again, Apple! :)

    It is worth the price tag and to be honest, it is better than the previous AirPort. Easy to set up and working flawlessly.

    I've been having trouble for over a year getting a clear, strong data transfer rate between my Airport Extreme in the office and m I've been having trouble for over a year getting a clear, strong data transfer rate between my Airport Extreme in the office and my Apple TV in the family room. Most days, movies would have to buffer for up to an hour or even longer before they were ready to play.

    I tried every quick fix I could think of: relocating the router, a wireless repeater, and even a powerline ethernet adapter. Nothing seemed to help much. I was on the verge of switching to a different router in the hope of getting more broadcast power. I resisted resorting to the Airport Express due to the cost, but none of the cheaper fixes were working.

    It only took about a minute to connect it up and about another minute to configure the Express to my network and suddenly my Apple TV finally works the way it's supposed to. Hi-res video is virtually instantaneous. No buffering problems at all.

    What made it totally worth it to me was the seamless set up. I can't count the number of hours I've spent troubleshooting my other solutions. But with the Express, my problem was fixed within 10 minutes of opening the box.

    I was getting frequent drops on my home Comcast WiFi system. After reading the reviews on the AirPort Express I decided to purchas I was getting frequent drops on my home Comcast WiFi system. After reading the reviews on the AirPort Express I decided to purchase one. I noticed Apple had a refurbished unit for $72 including shipping, so I decided to purchase it. In the meantime I had hoped that the Comcast tech that was scheduled to come and check out my network would arrive after I received the Airport Express. Sure enough, about 30 minutes prior to the tech arriving my Airport Express was delivered by FedEx. I waited until the tech arrived to connect it just to see what his reaction would be. He saw I had purchased the Apple product and said it would really be an improvement to my internet and it would be more stable. Sure enough, the ease of installing it and the performance and range really did improve. You must first have a modem as this is only a router, but I decided to still keep my Comcast modem/router unit until I get another single modem which I presume will be a Motorola Surfboard which he recommended. My main goal at the beginning was to get back up and running again. I recommend this product to any one wishing to improve their internet service.
