    So much better than the Comcast Modem/Router

    • Written by from WEST PALM BEACH

    I recently bought the Airport Extreme. At the same time, after so many disappointments from Comcast, I switched to AT&T (praying that 6mb download times would not be horrible). Amazing...

    The difference between the "Up to 50mb" Comcast router and the "Up to 6MB" AT&T modem was my fear. With the Airport Extreme on board, it made the difference so slight, it's almost not noticeable. Further...

    When I used to open my Mac, sometimes it would connect to the Internet and sometimes I had to turn off the wi-fi and turn it back on again in order to get on the Internet. Now, I think it's on before the screen is vertical. And, I no longer have any streaming problems. How nice not to have to count the days before U-verse is available.

    Worth every cent!

    • Written by from Huntington Beach

    I have a Verizon router that was not doing the job. The Airport extreme is more than adequate. I've been on my Mac while my wife was also on hers & both of my daughters were using their iPads & AppleTV was streaming music without any problems. Totally worth the money.

    So far so good

    • Written by from Murrieta

    Not being computer literate, still on my iphone4, waiting for my new 6, I purchased AppleTV and was talked into the AirPort Extreme which after my son face timing me through the set up of my new tower going through my existing Verizon router, it was a cinche. I am now able to use wifi, on my 60" flat screen in the family room, my 30" f/s in my bedroom, my iPad ,iPhone, AppleTV, Galaxy tablet, my dads of cell phone, and a acre computer plugged into the AirPort Extreme. All using the wifi 24/7, with out any problems. Also had a friend over and he was using my wifi and could not believe how fast it was now compared to my Verizon router. Granted it was a costly $200.00 but Verizon wanted $129. For their upgraded router and an additional $10.00 per month for the upgrade. So I believe it's a win win for myself. I don't have much music on my devices like most but for what I'm using it for, it's perfect for me.

    Horrible Product - will not connect to internet

    • Written by from CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP

    This was a total disaster of a product. We have a house full of apple products, 2 mac book airs, 2 iphones, 2 ipads and an apple TV. figured this would be a great new router. This device will not connect to our less than 1 year old cable modem. We had reset the cable modem multiple times as well as left it unplugged for a good 15 minutes before plugging it back in. at one point i was able to get access to the internet through the device, but only on my macbook air. the iphones said they were connect to the network, but they had no internet access. Seriously Apple, this is unacceptable.

    Gives Early '09 iMac New Life

    • Written by from Highland Park

    My home router connects through my ISP modem and ran into an initial installation glitch, probably my fault, called the free (for 90 days) support line and was talked through the setup process (including using my old Airport as a 'router extender') by an extremely competent and patient support guru. The new Airport Extreme worked like a charm within 90 minutes of being out of the box. My Early '09 iMac operates noticeably faster and crisper, so much so I think I will defer plans to replace it with a newer model. One minor complaint is the extremely tiny size of the instruction booklet font, virtually unreadable in the absence of microscopic eyes, had to use a magnifying glass, and the same is true of deciphering the serial number etched into the bottom of the device. In terms of living up to its advertised promises, however, I couldn't be happier with current Airport Extreme.

    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.

    Rock solid now...

    • Written by from Casselberry

    My grandson bought me this and took my older Airport Extreme with him. I had serious issues getting it set up. The first issue was an ISP/user problem and not the fault of the Airport Extreme. The second issue was that it would first give me all greens and then say the ethernet cable was disconnected. This lasted for about 30 minutes, made me seriously crazy and then it just cleared up. It has worked perfectly ever since. A couple reviewers have put bogus information up and I just wanted to correct their errors. First, I have an ATT Microcell connected to this router and to the previous one. The Microcell can be sensitive to its location and general environment but it works perfectly with the Airport Extreme. I also have a 2TB WD MyBook Studio drive connected to my system. It worked fine with the original Airport Extreme and it works fine with this one. I use it for storage and to wirelessly support Time Machine for a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro 15".

    Please don't project your problems onto the Airport Extreme, it works fine with both of these devices

    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 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!

    Airport Extreme - Airport Express

    • Written by from ALAMO

    Hi - I initially purchased a airport extreme, and it worked perfectly, but figured if one is good then more is better - NOT. I went out purchased another Extreme, and a airport express to cover my multi level home. After many calls, and software updates, they don't like to play together. Meaning, I hard wired the 2 extremes together and extended my wireless network, and this is when the problems started. I would suggest the product as a single function device, and avoid networking them together,

    Rock solid reliability but signal strength in my house is horrible.

    • Written by from Hacienda Heights

    I can't believe I need 2 Airport Extremes (connected via ethernet) to get full coverage in my 1300sq ft house. They are not near any other electronics.

    I had the previous gen and thought the new one would have greater range (We'll see when the next iphone gets AC I hope), tried using the old one as a wireless repeater (didn't work too well, would always lose connection at one side of the house) then finally figured you can hook up ethernet cable to 2 airport extremes so they both transmit.

    I read that a work around for poor wifi coverage on the iphone 5 was switching from WPA2 to WEP. While it did improve signal reliability. What a BS work around. Maybe my 1960 house has lead walls, but if the signal has to pass through a closet or 2 walls. Your signal will drop and your phone will say ''You are not connected to the internet''. I had to use LTE in my master bedroom and bathroom (the newest APExtreme was 25' away behind 2 walls. before I hooked up the older extreme via ethernet as a second router.

    Well worth the money!

    • Written by from willingboro

    I spent a lot of time researching the different routers because I was having issues with dropped connections and losing connections in certain areas of my house. I will mention my modem is in the worst possible place in my house, the back bedroom in the corner. With my old router, the only computer that had wifi beyond the living room was my Mac. When I was at the apple store purchasing my MacBook Pro, the salesperson informed me that an airport would be covered under my apple care. So I did some more research and since almost all of my wireless devices are apple I figured this would be the best move. Set up was extremely easy on my MacBook Pro and all other apple devices. I will say that trying to connect my Dell was a bit harder. I recommend downloading AirPort Utility for anyone who has a Windows running computer. Once I did it, there was only a few more steps that I needed to take. I'm pretty good with computers, so if you aren't connecting this to an apple computer and aren't really tech savvy, this may not be the best router for you. I have amazing range, took my computer to the backyard and still had 3 bars. Before also I would only be able to have two devices connected without seeing an issue with connectivity. As I'm writing this we have an iPod, iPad, Apple Tv, Dell Computer, and MacBook Pro all connected and the connection is perfect on all the devices. Moving forward I will be sticking with all Apple products!

    WOW...we got the best!

    • Written by from Gainesville

    we had problems with our wireless system in our house for the past few months. We have a 3800 square foot old home (concrete block!!) and all of our products are apple. it was a nightmare getting signal across our home. We had an airport extreme from 2009. we were always dropping signal. we replaced our cable modem, had new wiring, purchased several extenders and still could not get signal across our house. We read bunch of reviews and saw pretty good reviews on this gem. WOW! are we impressed! this thing works right out of the box. it was an easy set up as expected. now the signal across our home is so strong! the signal never drops. absolutely the best! we highly recommend this product! you will not be disappointed.
