  • Ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

    With 802.11ac technology and a powerful beamforming antenna array, AirPort Extreme gives you up to 3x faster Wi-Fi and a stronger, clearer signal.1 And because it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time, your wireless devices will automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest performance possible.

    Designed with performance in mind.

    With the antennas at the top of the elevated design, AirPort Extreme now has a higher platform for dispersing the signal. We also increased the number of antennas. There are now six of them — three for the 2.4GHz band and three for the 5GHz band. Together with 802.11ac technology, they let you connect faster, farther, and with more power than ever before.

    Easy setup for iOS and OS X.

    Connect your DSL or cable modem to AirPort Extreme and use the built-in setup assistant to create your new wireless network in just a few taps from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. If you’re using a Mac, use the built-in AirPort Utility. Setup is just as fast and just as easy.

    Share your hard drive or printer.

    AirPort Extreme can turn any external USB hard drive into a secure drive you can share across your Wi-Fi network. So all the documents, videos, photos, and other files instantly become available to anyone, Mac and PC users alike. You can even connect a printer and share it wirelessly.

    Compatibility and security.

    Any Wi-Fi device you have will work with AirPort Extreme. That’s because it’s compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, and 802.11ac specifications. And since AirPort Extreme features a built-in firewall that protects your network from malicious Internet attacks, you can enjoy the web with peace of mind.

    Couldn't try out "ac" as I don't have any thing compatible. Just replaced my AP Extreme (Gen 5) and compared to that its much fast Couldn't try out "ac" as I don't have any thing compatible. Just replaced my AP Extreme (Gen 5) and compared to that its much faster. Range wise, I haven't found much of an improvement, but then again it could be my house. I still have to use another AP EXPRESS to extend my network in my house. Simple to set it up and looks good too.

They do have a After many rounds of frustration with Netgear routers and extenders, I decided to give this Airport Extreme a try. They do have a great return policy...It simply just worked, out of the box. Set up was very intuitive and simple, and it immediately recognised the Airport express that I use as an extender. I coould not be more pleased with this product, especially since this isn't a spare time/hobby for me, but I use it for work 24/7. I had it in service for 3 weeks now, and it has been flawless, meaning I don't even know it's there. Precisely the opposite of other brands I have owned before. It is hard wired to a satellite modem, my 2 computers, printer and airport express are tied into it. While expensive, I am very glad I went with this set of routers. All my other apple wireless devices like ipad, iphone and apple tv talk to it flawlessly. Guests with Androids etc also have no issue connecting to my guest network. Time will tell if it is durable and can take power outages etc. But so far, so very very good. I downloaded the utility for it on all my devices, but it had already began to work before I got done downloading. My kind of equipment.

    For quite an expensive bit of kit that forces itself to be the primary router in your home network, you'd expect it to support som For quite an expensive bit of kit that forces itself to be the primary router in your home network, you'd expect it to support something as simple as static routes.

    I've got a VPN router that connects me to my work network and as the AirPort extreme doesn't support VPN either it;s essential I can still use this other box, but as the Airport Extreme doesn't support static routes and doesn't allow you to override the default gateway it pushes out through DHCP I have to turn off the router support in the Airport Extreme which cripples the features.

    Even the most basic of routers I've seen support static routes, it's amazing that Apple have neglected such a fundamental feature.

The AirPort Extreme is seamlessly supporting multiple i-devices and Smart TV's without the buffering I was experiencing with just the Motorola Cable modem alone. Great product so far, worth every penny!
