    Yes and No. You could take it outside for temporary use, but I would not recommend leaving one setup outside. The plastic will not weather well in the sun. It isn't waterproof... or dirt proof... or sun proof... or squirrel proof...

    So, it just depends what you're needing. I'd say for a day where you need to extend your network outside, go for it; but for regular use, I would not set one up outside. I would suggest finding an outdoor router (like one from Cisco).

  • The Airport Extreme, Airport Express, and Time Capsule are not weatherproof and therefore unsuitable for outdoor use.
