Learn more about AirPort Express

  • 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.

  • Great Router?

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.

    The Bad
    --Does not play well with other routers - May or may not be related to the second issue
    --Frequently requires complete r The Bad
    --Does not play well with other routers - May or may not be related to the second issue
    --Frequently requires complete reset - Sometimes in 1 hour, sometimes 2 weeks
    --Low-to-moderate connectivity - 5 feet away feels same as 50 feet
    --5G doesn't work - Super slow and only works for about a minute, then it just hangs until next reset

    The Good
    --Super simple to setup
    --Compact
    --Generally has enough bandwidth for Netflix (only on 2.4ghz)

    Overall Experience : Disappointing
    --Barely an improvement from the dumpster router it replaced.
    --Gave me a lot of grief. Took a lot of effort to achieve stability, I suspect this is caused by non-apple routers in the network.

  • Almost never works - audio drops constantly!

    I bought the 2nd gen because Apple kindly stopped allowing my to connect to my old device so I can no longer configure it. I've tr I bought the 2nd gen because Apple kindly stopped allowing my to connect to my old device so I can no longer configure it. I've tried every setting but my Mac can rarely connect to this new one. My iPhone and iPad can find it easier but the audio drops every few seconds making it completely useless. All other devices I have can connect just fine to the network. Online help is useless. I'm returning it.

    I love all things Apple--till now. Bought to replace an oldie but goodie Netgear router for wifi for my Imac, Macbook and iPhone. I love all things Apple--till now. Bought to replace an oldie but goodie Netgear router for wifi for my Imac, Macbook and iPhone. Out of the box, despite numerous tries, Express simply would not connect. Spent two hours with my Cox cable tech, the local Apple Retailer (where I bought) it, and AT&T (for my M-Cell booster), plus Mac online help. Kept getting a flashing amber light indicating no connection. Unplugged, re-plugged all connections, etc. Flat out refused to work. A possible, maybe, problem might be compatibility with AT&T M Cell, but still not sure. What I am sure is that in between attempts I reconnected my old Netgear router and it worked--and still does. Had to return Express. I dunno. I really wanted it to work.
