    Nice Improvement over Previous Generation

    • Written by from Birmingham

    I have a cable modem in one room and do most of my work in another. I extended my network with previous generation airport extremes and really took a hit on internet speed over wifi. I replaced both airport extreme's with the current version (in the store) and the internet speed improvement was huge. So if you're on the fringe, just upgrade, it's worth it. These are VERY nice routers and worth the upgrade.

    Excruciating

    • Written by from Ajo

    10 to 20 seconds it's WiFi: On, the next 10 to 20 seconds it's WiFi: Looking for Networks.

    No steady connection lasting more than 30 seconds.

    Can't reliably access printers, other computers, or internet. This is very damaging to us.

    Works Perfectly

    • Written by from Toronto

    This router works flawlessly with our 150Mbps connection. Breeze to set up. The only thing missing is the audio out from the Express. Not a deal breaker. We have both and love them.

    Feedback on Airport Extreme

    • Written by from Marlton

    Fantastic product! I literally installed the extreme in 5 minutes and we have total coverage for a large house and property!

    Easy setup, better range, faster WiFi

    • Written by from Jaffrey

    I bought this to replace an aging Time Capsule. Coverage around our house was spotty in some areas and as our family has grown, I've needed WiFi in the far reaches of the house. I bought the new AirPort Extreme hoping it would provide coverage without the need for two base stations.

    This unit covers every corner of the house with a strong signal and was very easy to set up.

    I don't have any ac wireless devices, but all our devices (iPhone, iPad and laptops) seem to have much faster internet access and file sharing.

    I also like the guest network feature. We often have visitors and this makes it very easy for them to join (with or without a password).

    MORE POWAAAA!!!!

    • Written by from union city

    Wow! This thing is the real deal. I upgraded my wifi network with the new AirPort Extreme. Tested the speed with my iPhone sitting in the farthest section of my house from the router. Look at this speed! 27MB/s download and 10MB/s upload.

    Old setup:
    Previous generation AirPort Extreme
    2 Airport Expresses extending network

    New setup:
    New AirPort Extreme
    Previous Gen Extreme extending network

    Unfortunately I didn't test the speed of the previous setup, but the speed is like night and day. AND none of my devices are wirelss AC compatible. All are just wireless N. My PS3 was wired to one of the Expresses and showed 2MB/s download. Now it's wired to the extending Extreme and it shows 13.3 MB/s download. That's a BIG jump in speed. A lot of the increase is probably due to getting rid of the inferior Expresses, and using the old extreme as the extender. But whatever.... Huge seat of the pants difference. if you already own a previous generation Extreme, its time for an upgrade. MORE POWAAAA!!!!

    Easiest setup

    • Written by from Singapore

    With my 20 years of computer experience. This is the most easiest router that I ever setup. And it was setup with my iOS devices. No computer is needed. Great job apple.
    Highly recommend for first timer.

    I'm Extreme(ly) Impressed

    • Written by from San Tan Valley

    Prior to AirPort Extreme I was averaging an inconsistent 15-22Mbps on my internet speed tests with a NG 802.11n router. Now, with AirPort Extreme, my speed is averaging a very consistent 62-64Mbps. Have two Macs and an iPad on the network. Grandson is jealous.

    Great performance and setup is easy

    • Written by from Reston

    I can simply add to previous comments that this new version of Airport Extreme seems to be a huge upgrade. Not yet having any 802.ac devices, I can only rate the 802.n network performance. I'm not positive the range is significantly better than my last generation AE (it may be somewhat better) but the connection speed is definitely faster.

    My 2013 iMac was getting about 25-30 Mbps on speedtest.net before; with the new AE it's now averaging 50 Mbps or more (Verizon FIOS connection).

    I used my old AE to extend my wireless network and the process of transferring settings from old to new, and then using the old one to extend the network, couldn't possibly be easier. I've worked with numerous Netgear and Linksys routers in the past and nothing compares to ease Apple's process.

    Boosted internet speed 10x

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    A few months ago I upgraded my internet to Fios. The free router that came with it, placed one room away, gave me 6 mbps download speeds and a choppy connection. So I decided to get an Airport Extreme.

    I installed the Airport Extreme in minutes after hooking it up. In fact, my Macbook immediately opened the Airport Utility tool without me prompting it to. It was surprisingly seamless, but this is what you should expect from a collection of Apple devices!

    My download speed is now 70mbps. (Note: this beauty is sitting right on my desk).

    Now I'm thinking of returning it to get a Time Capsule for automatic backups...

    Conclusion: If you're undecided, BUY ONE. Just to try it out; you can always return it. But I guarantee you won't want to.

    Best Airport Apple has made to date

    • Written by from San Francisco

    We replaced last generations airport extreme with the new one and what an improvement. We have Comcast with 50mbs download and with the new Airport Extreme we can get that download speed throughout the house and not just in the office where the Airport Extreme is located. Before the new Airport Extreme we were dropping our speeds down to as little as 5mbs in parts of the house. If you like to stream videos and who doesn’t, this is a great upgrade.

    Extremely easy!

    • Written by from Roseville

    I didn't really need a new router but after making the switch from PC to a Mac and having the change go so seamless, I had to get it.

    The router is:

    Easy set-up
    Capable of configuring if you want
    Secure

    Best of all, I don't need to go down stairs to reset the router once a week.

    When you become complacent with your equipment you don't know what you're missing, well this router has it.

    Excellent, Fast, Easy!

    • Written by from Calgary

    A friend purchased this new Airport Extreme to replace the router side of the ISP provided router/cable modem. I set it up for him. I have setup Linksys, D-Link, Netgear routers numerous times. This is the easiest most intuitive setup I've ever experienced. I was so impressed I went out and got myself one and did the same thing. I'm getting amazing speeds (on a 100Mbps service). All of my devices are faster and the range is increbile. Highly recommended!

    Another amazing Apple product!

    • Written by from Wasaga beach

    Apples done it again! They solved every one of my home networking problems that i'v ever had over the years with one simple easy to use product. This is the first Airport Extreme I have owned and just like all Apple products it works fantastic. I had it all setup and working within 5 minutes of getting it out of the box and the rest of my devices connected (Mac Book pro, iMac, 2 Apple TV's, iPhone 5, and 2 windows computers) Thanks to this amazing router I am now able to stream 1080p movies to both Apple TV's simultaneously without losing my internet on my Mac Book where before I would lose my internet streaming one movie to one Apple TV... Keep the products coming Apple!!

    Easy setup BIG jump for me

    • Written by from middle village

    Haven't upgrade my router for like 6 years (Netgear G), so I pay$45/month for 30/mb down and 2/mb up and I'm only able to get those speed on my MBP connected with ethernet. All my wifi enabled device only getting 10 down and .5 up, after I swap the Airport Extreme my wifi speed tripled to 30 down and 2 up which what I should get.

    APE is expensive than other N router on the market that can give you the same speed but there is no doubt that APE is the easiest router to setup and configure.

    Blazing Fast and Amazing Range

    Replaced a generation 3 Extreme with this. Wow! No buffering issues between Tivo's. Signal reaches a block away from my house. Tivo stream works with this router and doesn't require a wired network. The time machine backup is quick and works like a charm.

    AirPort Extreme

    • Written by from Mission Viejo

    Very Happy with the new AirPort Extreme! I've had a Belkin Router and after less than a year it has been giving me problems. I recently purchased the AirPort Extreme and I am very amazed at how easy it was to install and how powerful it was! I recommend every one to purchase this item.
