Learn more about AirPort Express

  • Easy Wi-Fi setup using iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

    Connect your DSL or cable modem to AirPort Express and create your new wireless network in just a few taps from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Or use the built-in AirPort Utility on your Mac. Setup is just as fast and just as easy.

    Simultaneous dual-band 802.11n.

    AirPort Express lets Wi-Fi-enabled devices connect to your network on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands. Which means every connected device automatically uses the best band available for the fastest possible performance.

    Stream music with AirPlay.

    AirPlay takes the music from the iTunes library on your computer or iOS device and sends it wirelessly to any connected stereo or speakers in your home (audio cable sold separately). Play music on one set of speakers — or if you have more than one AirPort Express connected to speakers, play your music from iTunes on all of them at the same time.

    Print wirelessly from any room.

    On the back of AirPort Express is a USB port that’s made for your printer. Just plug it in and instantly it’s like having a printer in every room. And since AirPort Express works with Mac and PC, everyone in the house can take advantage of one centrally available printer.

    Compatibility and security.

    AirPort Express is compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n specifications. So no matter what Wi-Fi device you’re using, it will work with AirPort Express. AirPort Express also features a built-in firewall to protect your network from malicious Internet attacks. The firewall is automatically turned on, so you don’t have to do a thing.

    Create a guest network.

    Set up a separate Wi-Fi network with a separate password just for your guests. Simply enable the guest networking feature, and your guests can access the Internet but not other parts of your primary network, such as your computers, printers and LAN-attached hard drives.

The new airport express adds many of the features previously only available to the Extreme. A Ethernet port as well to hook up to a wired computer or a switch is finally included as well. Very easy to set up and works perfectly. I'm in 800SQ FT home though. anything over you should still consider an Extreme for the range.

The Linksys must have overheated and caught on fire - burning a hole in my cherry wood desk that has my 'Apple Collection' including vintage Macs. I would have died if anything would have happened to them. I saw online about this product and was persuaded to purchase it! It is so small, fits perfectly on my desk, and lastly became well fit in with my Apple Collection! The setup was quick and easy; Any old person could set it up! Great job again, Apple! :)

    It is worth the price tag and to be honest, it is better than the previous AirPort. Easy to set up and working flawlessly.

  • Frequent Drops When Streaming Music

    I bought two of these and use them to stream music from my computer through the two surround sound systems downstairs. The music c I bought two of these and use them to stream music from my computer through the two surround sound systems downstairs. The music cuts out frequently making them virtually uses. $200 wasted dollars. I'll be looking for products outside of apple to find a solution to whole-house music streaming.

    I have the current versions of Airport Extreme, and a last gen Airport Extreme, 2 current gen Airport Express, and 6 previous gene I have the current versions of Airport Extreme, and a last gen Airport Extreme, 2 current gen Airport Express, and 6 previous generation airport Express....(the other devices have speakers, and printers on them)

    I love it when it works... ( occasionally) and hate it the rest of the time...

    It is a cute gadget that is not ready to rely on for your home or office. Frequently drops signal, frequently cuts out... Who knows the source of the problem... is it iTunes, is it airport express, or airport extreme...? And don't get me started on Apple TV and it's problems... Want to stream to the speakers on a TV with an Apple TV unit..... ( it will lag behind your speakers connected other devices so badly that you get a persistent echo... Great concept, but execution is lousy !!!!!!!!!

    Lately I'm becoming an "Apple-hater." The hardware does not last, and the networking is not consistently stable.... PERIOD!!!
