    Finally Wifi

    • Written by from SURPRISE

    I am in a location where the only Wifi locations are locked. Recently, I needed to add a router for my solar panels so they could be monitored. The AirPort Extreme is so easy to use and I was finally able to sync my iPhone 5S to my Mac, needed Wifi to do that. Everything is working great and there is no reduction in speed.

    Works like it should

    • Written by from Commerce Township

    The installation of this router really was a non-event. Follow the instruction. I attached it to my Cable Modem, hooked it up to my switch, Vonage device, etc and turned it on. Shortly thereafter it was working. Very easy to configure using Airport Utility, add a guest network, etc. Very good range. I broadcast my SSID but have it secured, My only complaint? it costs more than some of its competitors but it is easy to bridge the network and extend the range, Very happy with it

    Solid Router- Fast, Stable and Reliable

    • Written by from Toronto

    I've previously owned routers from D-link, linksys and asus, all of which gave me troubles that required me to restart the router on a daily basis.

    Two months ago, I decided to give the apple airport extreme a chance and I was surprised by how much my wireless speed improved.

    The most important factor (aside from speed) when it comes to routers is stability and reliability; out of the 2 months I've had it so far, I've experienced zero, yes 0 disconnections.

    I also connected a 2TB western digital hard drive to the airport extreme and set up wireless time machine backup on 5 of my Macs, also works flawlessly.

    This router may be a little more expensive than other brands, but as with many apple products, it is well-built and reliable.

    Simply the best router

    • Written by from Toronto

    This is simply the best router ever.

    Setting up the Apple AirPort Extreme took me all but 10 minutes. It was so easy I was surprised, I kept thinking was that all, and it was. My internet is working much better and performing optimally now. No more slow downs from too many connected devices. I currently have 14 devices connected wirelessly to the Airport Extreme and it doesn't even flinch. It truly is a powerful machine in a small compact size.

    Prior to getting the Apple Airport Extreme, I had two routers covering our home which is approximately 2500 sq ft. The AirPort does such a wonderful job that we even get good coverage outside the home now, including the edge of the driveway and edge of the backyard. It amazing to see one router do all this.

    Finally, I have noticed improvements in streaming content from Netflix and Crackle, simultaneously on 2 TVs. With our previous router, streaming content simultaneously would sometimes cause the router to overheat and restart. We no longer have this problem, in fact we have streamed content on 4 devices simultaneously without issue.

    I'm really happy with this purchase, especially because how reliable and powerful it is. I would strongly recommend this everyone looking for a top quality router, you cant go wrong with the Apple AirPort Extreme.

    Best router I ever had.

    • Written by from Chambly

    This is certainly the best router I ever had so far. For people who don't want to waste time configuring or do complicated tasks with their router, this is the one. And on top of that, the range is just amazing.

    Best Router I have ever seen after about 1 year of USE still impressed

    • Written by from Riverside

    All my Computers are Dell but after listing to the Tech-Guy on the radio I stepped up to the Apple Airport Extreme and am very pleased.
    I have 4 iphones, Ipad and 7 Dell PCs as well as my wifi TVs, PS3, Xbox and all of those gizmos do better than ever using WIFI from this Router
    This is a 1/2 acre property and I have access to my network from any part of my yard in this single story house.
    This router has the capacity to connect all my devices at the same time without choking.
    I have used other routers, Netgear, Linksys, and Cisco but they all died. some after weeks while others after years.

    Easy Setup, consistent connection, fast!!

    • Written by from Ypsilanti

    Bought an AirPort Extreme a after dealing with ATT's atrocious gateways dropping wireless signals and constantly bottlenecking a 25mbps connection while watching a 3min 1080p video. The AirPort Extreme set up quickly in DHCP mode and easily retrieved an IP address to work for flawlessly behind the gateway acting as a modem (bridge mode). Have had absolutely zero issues so far, connection is strong and speeds are consistent. Definitely recommend this to anyone needed a high end AC router for it's dependability and ease of use.

    Very pleased, good range, easy setup

    • Written by from Chesterfield

    Problem that needed a solution: Needed to share Internet and network between two buildings, one frame and one masonry, about 300 yards apart. Some trees and a busy highway separate the buildings. Early solutions had stopped working due to trees and installation of energy-efficient windows.

    Pair of Airport Extreme Base Stations (802.11b/g/n/ac) replaced two non-Apple 802.11g routers and outdoor antenna. In building 1, ran Ethernet patch cable from phone company modem/router to Airport Extreme #1. Created new WiFi network on #1 with Airport Utility. Used Utility to configure #2 to join #1's new network. Carried Airport Extreme #2 to building 2, powered it up, and began using the network. Setup time about 10-15 minutes.

    AirPort Extreme...where have you been all of my life!?!?!

    • Written by from Morada

    Just did the easy install.
    Have Comcast internet and am using the Comcast triple-play modem.
    Had to get comcast to put the wireless gateway into full bridge mode.
    You can chat with them online or call them. easy....

    The APE doubled the wireless speeds throughout the house.
    Where we were getting 12 mbps we now get at least 25.
    Where we were getting 25 we are now getting close to 45.

    So far...very happy!
    Where have you been all of my life, APE?!?!

    Love it! Replaced an old AirPort Extreme, 3rd gen

    • Written by from Montreal

    My old AE 3rd gen wasn't able to cover all the places in the backyard. So I decided to upgrade to the latest hardware and in a word I'm very happy and satisfied with it. Setup was a breeze with AirPort Utility where I was guided to just do a replace operation of the older device. The whole thing with a firmware update took less than 10 minutes.

    Coverage is now great every where and the speed increased also for MacBook Air 2013 (they use 802.11ac) and on my iPad air too. I decided to put an harddisk on it to act as a "el cheapo" NAS...

    So, another happy customer.

    The nicest and most user friendly router out there.

    • Written by from Summerville

    I've had the 'luxury' of an AC router for quite some time now. Sadly, the router was a pain. It constantly cut out, speeds were unreliable, and setup was the biggest pain in the world.

    This past week I began eyeing the Airport Extreme, and rightfully so. Today I proudly purchased it at my local Best Buy. After hooking it up and loading up Airport Utility on my Mac, I was stunned at how amazingly easy it was to set up. Honestly, it was breath taking to see router setup this simple (And I've dealt with my fair share of routers in the past).

    After connecting to the device on my iPhone, iPad, PS3, PC, etc. I was happy to find that it worked smoothly on all of them.

    By far, the best router I have ever purchased.

    AirPort Extreme Base Station: another out-the-park home run

    • Written by from Kenner

    It was time to get serious and call Mother Apple for the latest and greatest AirPort Extreme Base Station when my D-link WBR-2310 RangeBooster G Wireless Router went off the reservation. The emblematically elegant Airport Extreme micro-tower was delivered in two days and ten minutes later she was vigorously pumping a flood of energy to all points in my single story sprawling 4,400 square foot home. The Base Station immediately prompted for a seamless firmware update on initial connection and subsequent configuration with Apple's complementary Airport Utility iPhone app was incredibly simple and intuitive. Simplicity of installation, price point, form & functionality, performance, support, and Apple's "no questions asked" money back guarantee made this device a game breaker for me. And kudos to my Apple sales person, Adrian, for clearly and accurately presenting the multiple advantages and ease of installation of the Airport Extreme device, as well as to Apple Inc. for adeptly removing the pain from router installation and management.

    Love the AirPort Extreme

    • Written by from Kalamazoo

    Got this router the other day and it is the best router I have ever used. I have all Apple devices (with the exception of my smart tv....cough cough) and had a heck of a time with other routers and this is a god send! I dont know why i didn't buy this sooner.

    It connects my MacBook Pro, iPhone 5, iPad Air, Smart TV, and printer without even breaking a sweat. Set up was super easy on my iPhone. It also allows for guest networks which I love. Thank you Apple for continuing to make amazing products!

    Ease of use ~ fantastic

    • Written by from Concord

    I purchased this router because I am becoming an apple enthusiast. It basically set itself up, easiest router setup with security installed i have ever experienced. it is faster than my old router, and has better range, but my old router was old. I am sure there are comparable routers and even routers with better reviews, but I am very happy.

    very reliable and super fast

    • Written by from pingree grove

    My house is fairly large with two floors and a basement. Our old router would cut out every few days and we dealt with it for four years. After we bought a new PC desktop and laptop for the house, we decided to upgrade our router.

    Before buying this, I read a ton of reviews ans there were lots of people having problems from not being able to use it in an existing network, to the range being awful, to not being able to connect an external hard drive or printer. However, we decided to buy it and try it out and ran into ALL of these problems. Literally took forever to get it set up (it was easy for my mac pro and our iPhones, but not the PCs).

    HOWEVER, after simple google searches we were able to solve everything. The signal is so strong and fast that I've stayed connected and used my wifi from 2 houses away! yes it took some work to set it up right, but I'm not going to blame the Airport extreme for my personal ignorance, which I feel like many people who give negative reviews do. Wr have a 1 TB external hard drive attached and our printer. Everyone in my house uses netflix/hbogo all the time and my brother and I are PC gamers. The signal has never dropped for 9 months now.

    I should add that I work in technology and have built several PCs myself and I still had trouble so those "support" people you call can't really help you if you won't even admit your own ignorance and blame them.

    Let's make a secure home network FUN!

    • Written by from Barrington

    I've wrestled with a Linksys wireless router over the years and left security settings off to avoid access problems for my big family. I shelled out the money for the AirPort Extreme thinking it is more expensive than some of the competition but not by much and if it's an Apple product that's intuitive to use, the money will be well-spent. I was right.

    I plugged in the router and followed the very simple directions. By the time it powered up, I had a setup window waiting for me on my MacBook Pro ready to name the network and set a password. It's fast as far as I can tell, it's much more powerful than my last router - no dead spots in my old house / approximately 1,600 square feet, 2 floors, a detached cottage in the back yard - they are all connected with a good signal strength!

    I also downloaded the iPhone app which allows you to manage your device and monitor users connected. I don't really need to use it but I think it's pretty darn cool!

    I have a few computers running with it, phones and mobile tablets, a usb connected printer (to the AirPort Extreme) and it's all working great! I would highly recommend this product for anyone like me that isn't an IT genius but wants top notch performance and security.

    Excellent, get this one

    • Written by from Lake Oswego

    OK I have had an Airport Extreme before and it wasn't very good. I tried this one after reading some of these reviews. My problem was that that I had very poor to none Wi-Fi in the family room(modem in the other end on the house). It's not a big house but there are lots of corners and rooms. Well let me say that this little devil works perfectly in the family room, I now have 2 bars of Wi-Fi. I then plugged in my 3 year old Airport Express in there and bingo I have Full bars in the family room. Now talk about easy, I plugged in the Airport Extreme to the modem and within 2 minutes Airport Utility recognized it and asked if I wanted it to replace my Network and keep the same password. Just re-entered the password. Then I plugged in the Airport Express and by the time I got back to the computer it too was up and running.
    If you are dissatisfied with your current wireless router, get this one
