Does Airport Extreme provide greater speed than Airport or Airport Express?

I have the original Airport and I'm wondering if switching to Airport Extreme will improve my online speed?

  • Best Answer:

    It will offer greater speed and range than your original AirPort since it is 802.11n. However, this speed is only noticable during file transfers, etc. as if you have 5 Mbps cable internet, an 802.11b device would be acceptable because that pushes out 11 Mbps. Wireless n will give you greater range for sure, but as far as making a difference in your browsing speeds, no.
