    Shocked

    • Written by from Leyland

    This is the first Apple product that I've purchased and felt utterly let down by it.

    I purchased it to replace my Virgin Media Superhub running on 2.4GHz. I thought with dual band and 6 antennas on the Airport Extreme Wi-Fi speeds would be much better or even at least a little better than the standard hub I had. However on tests using my iPhone 5s, iPad Air, Mac Mini and laptop speeds attained were no better, and in some cases worse than the Virgin Media Super Hub.

    So although it looks and all the blurb makes it sound amazing I'm afraid real life use is far from good :(

    If you use VPN, choose something else.

    Even though it says it supports PPTP passthrough - it's impossible to get it to actually work, since it seems to conflict with the "Back to my mac" feature. Instead of honouring the instruction to forward port 1723 to the VPN server, it just drops the packets.

    A fundamental flaw in an otherwise decent product.

    Still no airplay

    The ball = dropped.

    I have been waiting years to replace my aging wifi router with an extreme. Holding out for the new version which would surely introduce airplay.

    Would it have been so hard to include it... even as an option...

    But no. Its just another router in a (admittedly nice) white box.

    *sigh*
