    The best money you will ever spend!

    • Written by from Canton

    My townhome is 3 floors so my internet wasn't so hot even though I pay Time Warner Cable big bucks for their fastest internet. Since I have all Apple computers and Apple tv I bought two of these. I put one on the 3rd floor and one on the first floor. My internet is now CRAAAAAAAZZZZZZZYYYYYY FAST. HIGHLY HIGHLY suggest any one with the same situation to get at least one of these. You will thank me.

    Stable, Speedy, Strong and Super easy to setup.

    I just replaced my edimax router ac1200 since it died in a week. Airport extreme supports uPnP and the VPN. In addition, you can set it up wireless - edimax one needs wire connection for setup.

    Best router I've owned

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    I have tried every high end router from Linksys, Belkin, and Netgear and could never get Internet speeds above 20-28Mbps and with the AirPort Extreme I'm getting Internet speeds of 55-75Mbps a lot better than every other router out there. It's the same speeds I get as if I'm wired directly to the router. I love this router!

    new airport express

    • Written by from CHERRYVILLE

    Like some others who have written reviews here, I live in an older 2 story home with thick walls. For years I have been frustrated with TWC's inability to solve my reception issues. I have every Apple product ever made (or so my wife says) so why have I never tried Airport Extreme? Well, yesterday I purchased one, set it up (took one call to Apple Support to assist me and one call to TWC to disconnect the old wireless) and now I have incredibly better reception - from no reception upstairs in my bedroom to 4 bars! Amazing. I plan to buy one for my office. If you have had problems like me, this may be your answer.

    Speed, Space, Style.

    This router is a top-notch router that gives plenty of horsepower. It sets-up in seconds and connects with other base stations to make one impressive network. The new addition of Wireless AC bandwidth is going to provide plenty of throughput for some time to come. Very impressed with all aspects of this easy to use Airport Extreme.

    It doesn't go without some wanted additional aspects. I would like to see additional ethernet ports as it only has 3 to hard connect devices. This isn't as big of a deal as it used to be due to the mainstream of wireless devices. You're not able to mount this to a wall, which in some spaces is rather nice.

    All in all I have to give this stellar router a 5 out of 5. The price point seemed reasonable to me given the new AC bandwidth and smaller footprint. Their are other brands out there that have similar specs, but for the value and dependability I'm sticking with a product that has always come through for me.

    Great range increase

    • Written by from White Lake

    The AE became my base with a 4th gen my extended, and from my deck the average range increased 16% on the 2.4 band and 6-7% on the 5 band. I have a Linksys EA 4500 as the DNS router/server connected to the cable modem because it has UPnP, and the new AE averages 5% better than it on the 2.4 band and incredibly 21% better on the 5 band. I can't wait to get a Mac with ac wifi to test the speeds.

    As far as not having 4 ethernet ports, does that really matter anymore? Sure it would be nice to have had a USB 3.0 but for a printer that's not necessary either. Maybe the complainers should look at the ratings for the latest Linksys EA routers with ac... 3-3.5 out of 5 stars, with almost as many 1s as 5s!

    Glad I bought it

    • Written by from DURANGO

    While I do not use the new networking protocol, so I can't comment on that part, the strength of signal increase in my two story home is stunning. I get solid bars everywhere now, I used to get 1-2 bars in some parts of the yard and in some rooms. Streaming video from iPads and iMacs to the Appletv is solid. And... Totally easy to set up. I recommend it highly.

    I have clients who went with other brands, saved some money, and are spending way more in tech support to fix network issues and drop outs. Plus they suffer and struggle with it constantly. Go with Apple. Pay for quality and excellent design and software. Then just use it. It works. Your peace of mind is worth it.

    Best Wireless Router I've Ever Owned

    • Written by from Chicago

    I don't even own any 802.11ac devices, but this thing has amazing range and reliability. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could because only putting on three router ports instead of four just seems like another calculated Apple move to arbitrarily tick off their customers. But luckily I just connected an old router to use as a network switch, so It wasn't a big deal. Aside from that, I have zero negative comments about this product. Also, I can get my full internet capacity (25Mbps) inside my car down in my parking garage through concrete, steel, and who knows whatever else is between this thing and the car. I'm sold.

    Incredible improvement

    • Written by from Aldie

    I live in a large home with two of these on each end and on 3 acres of land. The signal now is incredibly strong and even covers part of my acreage. I never could do that before. I applaud Apple! Once yet again a superbly designed solution.

    Worth the upgrade!

    • Written by from OZARK

    I don't even have any 802.11ac devices (yet) and this made all my current devices have notably better range and speed throughout my entire house from the previous AirPort Extreme. The previous model though very good itself still lost 1 bar of reception at the corners of my home but this one installed in the same position keeps a perfect full signal everywhere, and the speed is better as well. I HIGHLY recommend this!

    Changed how wi-fi runs in my house-changed my world!

    • Written by from Springfield

    Immediate, sharp, big bang difference in Wifi performance from my pre-supplied Verizion Router for FiOS. With the sneakily increasing amount of wifi devices in the house, it was necessary to upgrade, and while I was moaning about the price, it's been worth it. Seamless install of about 5 minutes, Apple TV is happier than ever, the Ipads are screaming fast - well worth it. If you've got an apple house like mine - it's worth the investment.

    Best router out there

    • Written by from BEREA

    I have owned the last 4 versions of the Airport Extreme and so far, this is the very best router out of all of them combined, Hands Down!!!! The range is far superior, and my 5Ghz WiFi is consistent throughout the entire house. On top of all that, this unit runs a lot cooler, the previous versions were very warm to the touch. Very highly recommend.

    Best Router I have used!!!

    • Written by from Naperville

    This router does it all. The range in a new construction house is about 200ft. I get 5 bars from the second and basement my router is located on the first floor. This also mirrored the modems speed instead of choking it like my previous router, this means my internet is just as fast as if I was connected to the modem and not through the airport extreme. This router also lets you configure it from remote location and the ports for allowing servers and other device chat with the outside world are easy to configure. Also signing static Ip address are awesomely easy. On top of that the external usb is great for storage device and printers. If you want a device that will be reliable then get the airport extreme.

    Tower of Power

    • Written by from Austin

    The reviews are true. Switching from an older Airport Extreme to this model instantly provided five bar coverage everywhere in my home. Streaming appears to be faster as well.

    The form factor is a little more challenging to camouflage but this certainly has nothing to do with performance. Great product.

    Amazing speed easy setup

    • Written by from Winlock

    I had been fighting for weeks trying to get the wireless router portion of my Actiontec C1000a modem to be reliable. If I unplugged it it would work fir maybe a day and then get super slow unless I rebooted it. Once in awhile it would work for couple if days. I tried adding a wifi repeater but still inconsistent.

    I was skeptical about investing in AirPort Extreme. Boy am I glad I did! Setup was a breeze and wifi speed have never been this fast, ever! I can travel anywhere on our lot and have wifi reception. Coverage is phenomenal. You can't go wrong with the AirPort Extreme.

    A must buy!!

    • Written by from Cheney

    I bought this AirPort along with two MacBook airs because they both use the same 802.11ac wifi. And boy does this thing work! I live in a small apartment, so you can imagine I don't need it for it's wide range of coverage, but rather for it's capabilities. I own quite a number of wifi connected devices, and this thing handles all of them very well. It is making the best of the wifi that my new MacBook Air can handle, and getting me download speeds as high as my ISP will allow. And even my devices that don't use 802.11ac wifi have been shot with adrenaline when they connected to this guy. A must buy if you are buying a 2013 MacBook Air, or plan on buying any Macs in the future.
